Reviews

"[Omensetter's Luck is] Gass' first novel, and his least avant-gardeish, and his best. Basically a religious book. Very sad. Contains the immortal line "The body of Our Saviour shat but Our Saviour shat not." Bleak but gorgeous, like light through ice."
-David Foster Wallace

"Omsensetter's Luck is the work of a totally committed, totally uncompromising and extraordinarily gifted writer."
-Walker Percy

"A rich fever, a parade of secrets, delirious, tormented, terrifying, comic...one of the most exciting, energetic and beautiful novels we can ever hope to read."
-Harper's
