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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"'Not a book to rush through but to savour.' Daily Telegraph; 'Agape Agape derives much of its poignancy from its status as the last word of one of the most significant American authors of the last century.' Stephen Burn, Times Literary Supplement; 'The final, posthumous work of one of America's most Important novelists is a lumimous, plangent monoogue... an elegant and affecting swan-song.' Scotland on Sunday; 'A remarkable, contrary work of art.' John de Falbe, Spectator; 'Nobody has written noisier books than William Gaddis. When he died in 1998, he left behind four books bursting with human babble. Often uproariously funny, they capture with sizzling precision... subtle, expansive, intricate, caustically entertaining and resounding with perfectly caught give-away tones and idioms.' Sunday Times"
