Life Sentences

Literary Judgments and Accounts
William H. Gass

A dazzling collection of essays—on reading, writing, form, and thought—from one of America’s master writers. Beginning with the personal, both past and present, the work emphasizes William H. Gass’s lifelong attachment to books and then moves to ponder the work of some of his favorite writers, among them Franz Kafka, Friedrich Nietzsche, Henry James, Gertrude Stein, and Marcel Proust. An essential addition to the Gassian canon, Life Sentences showcases Gass at his best.
