Gass's case, their obsessions. After spending nearly 30 years on a massive, sprawling (and, for this reader), rather frustrating novel called "The Tunnel" about the secret life of a fascist leaning Midwestern university professor, Gass spent almost another 20 years on the book we have before us now, "Middle C." It's about the secret life of a troubled Midwestern university professor.

The book takes us from the first pages describing Skizzen's life in London (where his father inexplicably disappears) on through passages about Joseph's early years as a voracious reader in a small town Ohio public library and then further into his adulthood as a college music teacher. He moves through his life as if in a dream, all the while allowing his imagination to go wild, even as Guess Women's Quilted Crossbody Bag the college keeps him wondering about his faculty status, an oddly banal problem for a serious modern(ist) hero.

This man, an Austrian named Joseph Skizzen, fled Europe for the United States with his mother both of them posing as Jewish refugees at the end of the Second World War. He teaches music at a small Midwestern college, doling out lessons in the spirit of what he thinks of as "the middle C mind," his notion of mediocrity, while all the while imagining himself as the wild minded repository for a catalog of the ills of massacres and holocausts through history.

Here's a long awaited novel by one of the godfathers of contemporary American modernism (or "post modernism," as some critics and scholars call the continuation of the American modernist tradition). William H. Gass, a new fangled genius, along with John Gardner, Robert Coover, John Barth and a few others in the 1960s and '70s, flew the flag sewn in Paris in the '20s by Gertrude Stein.
