The first comprehensive study of the works of William Gass addresses the extensive correlation between the theoretical and fictional works and places Gass at the forefront of contemporary post-realism.Saltzman argues that contrary to charges of moral, artistic, or even political turpitude, the innovative fiction of William Gass represents a conscientious effort to contend with indeterminacy through art. In the fiction of Gass and other contemporary writers, the world of the text is a distinct and competitive addition to reality, not a mere description of reality.Saltzman examines Gass s major fictional works, "Omensetter s Luck "and "Willie Masters Lonesome Wife, "the collected stories of "In the Heart of the Heart of the Country, "the extensive novel-in-progress "The Tunnel, "as well as the essay collections, "Fiction and the Figures of Life "and "The World Within the Word.""
