William H. Gass (1924-2017)--essayist, novelist, literary critic--was born in Fargo, North Dakota. He was the author of six works of fiction and nine books of essays, including Life Sentences, A Temple of Texts, and Tests of Time. Gass was a former professor of philosophy at Washington University. He lived with his wife, the architect Mary Gass, in St. Louis.
"[Omensetter's Luck is] Gass' first novel, and his least avant-gardeish, and his best. Basically a religious book. Very sad. Contains the immortal line "The body of Our Saviour shat but Our Saviour shat not." Bleak but gorgeous, like light through ice." -David Foster Wallace "Omsensetter's Luck is the work of a totally committed, totally uncompromising and extraordinarily gifted writer." -Walker Percy "A rich fever, a parade of secrets, delirious, tormented, terrifying, comic...one of the most exciting, energetic and beautiful novels we can ever hope to read." -Harper's
