full of Gass


And when some lines of yours have set another’s mouth to moving, making that sense with those sounds: is that not better than a kiss?

Folks, you already how much the Literary loves William H Gass. Well, the good people over at NYRB Classics have released a new edition of In the Heart of the Heart of the Country, and we’ve reviewed for you here.

Heart has not seen a major publishing effort in thirty years. As such, this new edition is a huge boon to the contemporary library. It is also, as will be evident to past readers of the NYRB imprint, a beautiful physical object, something we at the Literary care about.

The stories in the collection–“Mrs Mean” was first published in 1958, when Gass was 34, “The Pederson Kid” came out in 1961, and “Heart” in 1967–are already well loved by many. We hope the new generation of readers gets on board.
