fiction and the figures of life 12 Feb. 2008
By H. Curtler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a supurb collection of essays by one of the very few American philosophers who can write well. Gass combines a penetrating insight into the human condition, an awareness of genuine philosophical difficulties, and a grasp of the way words should be used. He is a true wordsmith who has something important to say. I recommend this book highly.

A Beautiful Book 27 May 2013
By pomogirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Gass is certainly one of the best writers around in terms of writing poetic prose and having a sense of humor at the same time. His language density is intense, and that's what some of us want when we read (rather than plot-based works that don't seem to understand the importance and beauty of language).

Good writing, excellent models for study 5 Sept. 2010
By Ken - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of those to read, re-read, dissect, digest, quote, and use. A handbook for outstanding style.

over my head 21 May 2011
By james hilton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
i'm sure that highly educated literature scholars get a lot out of this book, but I think that it is over my head as I rarely feel that I know what he's saying.
i am not educated in literature, and I realize that.
