In the Heart of the Heart of the Country by William Gass
The five stories in this book have different themes
and settings, but there is something distinctive about the tone and the
voice; Gass's signature in these stories sets them apart. The style is
poetic and at times gnarled. The sentences are worked on and sculpted.
Gass is clearly as interested in language as he is in things; he gives
the impression that the words he uses were cut out of stone.
