Agape Agape Summary


Agape Agape by William Gaddis

Agape Agape continues Gaddis' career-long reflection via the form of the novel on those aspects of corporate culture that are uniquely destructive of the arts. The unnamed narrator of William Gaddis's last, powerfully memorable novel lies dying in bed, as its author did, gaping in wonder and amazement at our lost capacity for sacred passion. Innovative and troubling, Agape Agape is a brilliant, all-too-brief, testament to its dazzling author, one of the twentieth century's great novelists.The 'other writings' include his seminal essay 'The Rush for Second Place', commentaries such as 'J R Up to date' and 'On Creative Writing and the National Endowment for the Arts', and Gaddis' speeches, all of which provide a fascinating insight into Gaddis writing.
