It sounds very interesting. I don't know who Harry Mathews is, but I used to love John Barth. I haven't read any of his work written since the 1980s. I have read only one work each by Coover (The Public Burning) and Markson (WM) but both were terrific. I definitely plan to read more Gass.
: I hope others will be joining the two of us in this
Yes, I wish that we had a broader discussion of Omensetter's Luck, too. Guillermo said that he planned to read it, and I seem to recall that Lale might join you in reading The Tunnel. I hope they and some of the other less active members (joffre, for instance?) will read this difficult but glorious novel.
