Disappointing Writing (Or, Perhaps It's My Reading)
I've recently read (most of) two of the more lauded new works of fiction this year: William H Gass's Middle C (Knopf 2013) and James Salter's All That Is (Knopf 2013). Both books left me cold. Don't ask me how they ended; I didn't finish either. Perhaps my tolerance for fiction has diminished. I also recently started, but could not finish, Anthony Trollope's The Way We Live Now . So, Gass and Salter are in good company.
