A strange and monumental novel that took William Gass three decades to write. When a Midwestern historian sits down to write the introduction to his magnum opus study of the Third Reich, he instead writes a chaotic, obscure and labrynthine exploration of his personal history. Then he begins digging a tunnel from the basement of his house. The writing, the digging, and the reader's reading blend into one profound meditation on history, evil, the living and the dead. PEN/Faulkner Award Finalist.From the Publisher:
From one of the most important American writers of our time, a novel thirty years in the making, exploring evil, history, the living, and the dead. "The most beautiful, most complex, most disturbing novel to be published in my lifetime."--Los Angeles Times Book Review
