WILLIAM GADDIS (1922-98) was one of the greatest writers in twentieth-century America.He wrote five novels and won two National Book Awards, for JR (1976) and for A Frolic of His Own (1995).His other landmark novels include: The Recognitions (1955) and Carpenter's Gothic (1985).Agape Agape was published by Atlantic in 2002.Review:
"An unholy landmark of a novel--an extra turret added on to the ample, ingenious, audacious Gothic mansion Gaddis has been building in American letters"—Cynthia Ozick, The New York Times Book Review
"Everything in this compelling and brilliant vision of America--the packaged sleaze, the incipient violence, the fundamentalist furor, the constricted sexuality--is charged with the force of a volcanic eruption. Carpenter's Gothic will reenergize and give shape to contemporary literature."—Walter Abish
