William H. Gass reportedly died on December 6

Filed under: Uncategorized — m759 @ 2:04 PM

"William H. Gass, a proudly postmodern author
who valued form and language
more than literary conventions
like plot and character
and who had a broad influence
on other experimental writers
of the 1960s, ’70s and beyond,
died on Wednesday in St. Louis. He was 93."

Dee Wedemeyer, The New York Times ,

"Mr. Gass was widely credited with coining the term
'metafiction' to describe writing in which the author
is part of the story. He himself was one of the form’s
foremost practitioners." — ibid.
