St. Louis Post-Dispatch books editor Jane Henderson toasts Gass at 90.
In the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's recent “Go! List” 2014 — it's annual 'best of' feature — Gass was named Best Local Author by books editor Jane Henderson:
Fantasy readers may prefer Laurell K. Hamilton or Sharon Shinn, and suspense lovers may like Ridley Pearson, John Lutz or Scott Phillips. But I have to go with William H. Gass here: He’s this city’s literary lion. Internationally known, Gass has influenced modern literary criticism and numerous contemporary authors. He’s St. Louis’ best living author. JH
Happy 90th Birthday, William H. Gass

Joey, Chandler and… Gass?
Readers: I’m very pleased to announce the launch of TheGassInterviews.org.
Free to all and readable on any device, the microsite collects 13 essential interviews that Gass gave between the late 1970s and 2013. It’s titled “The Ear’s Mouth Must Move,” a phrase of Gass’ own. The pieces feature text, related historical photography, video, and a handful of marginal notes and links that might be of interest to readers.
