I started Gass's The Tunnel a few years ago and stalled. I decided to try Omensetter's Luck as a shorter entre into Gass's work. It's not an easy book. It's often called "impressionistic," and for much of it, I thought it was much like Joyce at his (non-Wake) hardest (but thankfully briefer). I began to doubt my fitness to read such a book. But then it began clicking, and the last half or so goes down more smoothly. It's a book that needs rereading, and it's worth picking up for the afterword if nothing else.
