Description
Scathing, lyrical, and hilarious by turns, this collection of essays by the National Book Critics Circle Award–winning author of The Tunnel blasts the poor judgment of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction committee, and laments writers' misuse of the present tense. William H. Gass also offers two dazzling statements of purpose ("Finding a Form," and "The Book as a Container of Consciousness"); makes a thorough and entertaining analysis of what, exactly, ought to be called "avant-garde"; examines the work of a number of other great thinker-stylists (Ford Madox Ford, Robert Walser, Ludwig Wittgenstein); and provides a concise, playful history of the art of narrative as a whole.

"No one is better than William H. Gass at communicating the sublime and rapturous excitement of reading."—Washington Post
