Book review: The William H. Gass Reader

Posted on November 7, 2018



According to Gass a total aesthete reduces everything to

style; the centrality of moral and ethical issues in his

writing proves that Gass is not merely an aesthete.

Whether or not they agree with him his readers will never

be cognitively malnourished, and his poetic prose is a joy

to read even when its vision is pessimistic.”

— From my review of The William H. Gass Reader in

New York Journal of Books
