Description

Now recognized as one of the giants of postwar American fiction, William Gaddis (1922-98), author of "The Recognitions" and "J R," shunned the spotlight during his life, which makes this collection of his letters a revelation: an intimate look at one of the great literary minds of the 20th century.
