Now THIS is fabulous! For what it’s worth, The Recognitions is the only novel of its size that I’ve read through twice, with plans simmering on the back burner to read it again. Thank you for this resource.
don’t forget to add: http://www.williamgaddis.org/
Kim, williamgaddis.org is so much the prime resource for Gaddis stuff that I consciously left it off the list, although I did link to it a few times on this list (and it undoubtedly led me to some of these sources/ideas in the past)—I even posted the Ozick rev to that site instead of NYT’s archives. It wasn’t meant to be a slight at all, leaving it off—more like a recognition that it’s like, *the* site for Gaddis notes, and anyone searching out Gaddis stuff has likely been there. Although maybe this needs to be clarified for potential Gaddisites. . . .
This is incredible, thank you.
I’m constantly surprised by the number of people who don’t know about the williamgaddis.org site and those who have not used it while reading or re-reading Gaddis – redundancy is often helpful to ADD types ;)
Well, I added it—You know, I tried to stay away from it for the most part—didn’t want to get too bogged down in reference points—but it’s especially helpful for Recognitions.
Jonathan Franzen: Please. Just love me. I’m begging you. Please love me and then please, just leave me alone.
Wow, what a great round-up. Thanks!
Hi–thanks for this fantastic list of Gaddis resources! You might consider adding a link to the William Gaddis Papers–his complete literary archive: http://library.wustl.edu/units/spec/manuscripts/gaddis.html. The link for the finding aid is under the picture. You can contact me (the curator) with any questions.
