    1. What we have here is kind of a double feature Not only do we get one of the foundational works in Gaddis Studies, but we get Steven Moore s exemplary criticism, Moore as model reader Reading his two volume study of the history of the novel leaves one at first rather astounded at the mere volume of what he s read, but importantly, one notices how good a reader he is And this study of Gaddis s five novels demonstrates the closeness and depth of his reading in addition to the breadth found in his [...]

    2. A new expanded version is now available Moore intends it to be an expansion than a revision so the major change is the additional chapters on Frolic and Agape Joseph Tabbi s biography of Gaddis is slated for a May 2015 release Nobody Grew but the Business On the Life and Work of William Gaddis It was a memorable experience to devour the manuscript of Carpenter s Gothic in a day while visiting with Gaddis, but it s a lesser work Gaddis s first novel, The Recognitions, was my favorite for a long [...]

    5. There s a good reason that Gaddis was vehemently opposed to literary celebrity status and theory influenced critical interpretations of his work Moore makes a couple of interesting points, and his one of the adept Gaddis scholars, but reading his analysis of Gaddis makes my eyes roll at times If you really like Gaddis work, don t bother with these books, just enjoy his books.
