“William Howard Gass (July 30, 1924 – December 6, 2017), was an American novelist, short-story writer, essayist, critic, and philosophy professor. He penned three novels, three collections of short stories, a collection of novellas, and seven volumes of essays, three of which have won National Book Critics Circle Award prizes and one of which, A Temple of Texts (2006), won the Truman Capote Award for Literary Criticism. His 1995 novel The Tunnel received the American Book Award. His 2013 novel Middle C won the 2015 William Dean Howells Medal.” From Wiki.

William Gass read, thought and wrote from a chair, like most writers do. Yes there are exceptions, Malcom Lowry worked from a “standing desk” long before they were object nouveau in office furnishing.

Here is  a passage from The Tunnel, by William H. Gass, read by Victor Enns, recorded “live off the desk.”
