About the Author

John Gardner (1933-1982) was one of the most provocative American novelists of his generation, garnering critical praise and a popular following for his fiction, including October Light, The Sunlight Dialogues, Grendel, and Mickelson's Ghost, as well as his criticism, the groundbreaking Moral Fiction, and his controversial The Art of Fiction, which has become a standard text in university writing classes around the country.

William H. Gass was born in Fargo, North Dakota. He is the author of seven works of fiction, nine books of essays, and a book of conversations. Gass was a professor of philosophy at Washington University. For most of his life he lived in St. Louis, Missouri, with his wife, the architect Mary Gass. William Gass died in 2017.

Reviews

"Nickel Mountain is shapely and moving enough to make you believe, while you are reading it, in ancient forms and permanent truths." --New York Times Book Review

"No one tracks the emotional landscape of characters better than John Gardner. In language both supple and precise Nickel Mountain explores the price and the prize of being human." --Toni Morrison
