William Gaddis Beyond the "Very Small Audience": Centenary, Archive, and Futures

Tuesday, April 26, 2022 - 1:43pm
Gaddis Centenary Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 13, 2022

The last decade has been good for Gaddis’ public profile. Three major milestones—Joseph Tabbi’s biography, Steven Moore’s edition of Gaddis’ letters, and #Occupy Gaddis, 2012’s global social-media readthrough of J R—have seen Gaddis discussed across major US media, the letters and biography reviewed more widely (in an age of less literary reviewing) than much of Gaddis’ fiction was during his lifetime. As a result, Gaddis’ first two novels are now republished in the NYRB Classics series, giving them their best chance yet of finding that post-2010s boom audience.
