MIDDLE C by William Gass

MIDDLE C by William Gass

2nd April 2013

MIDDLE C by William Gass received a 4-star review in Time Out New York: “Gass orchestrates his fiction with thematic elements as a composer might a symphony, reworking the events of Joey’s life to more thoroughly explore the idea that all individuals share in a universal guilt… Typical of Gass’s subversive fiction, Middle C forgoes easy moralizing in favor of a more ambivalent relativism. In the case of Joey Skizzen, it’s mendacity, not truth, that will set you free.” Knopf published the book March 12, 2013.
