But this vaunted status hasn’t satisfied Gass, who continues to search (quest, even) for new ways of understanding language and literature. In describing his current projects, he rattled off quite a list—“a novel called Middle C, a little book called On Some Passages in Jeremy Taylor, getting a couple essay collections together, still working on The Architecture of the Sentence”—and then added, “essays now and then for Harper’s.”
From a synopsis of a longer interview. William Gass is on the small list of writers I purchase as they publish. I am looking forward to The Architecture of the Sentence.
