William Gaddis and David Markson

Beyond the references in Markson's book, David Markson's relationship with Gaddis extends beyond mere passion and correspondence. This 1989 interview suggests that Markson was directly responsible for the first reissue of The Recognitions. It's also worth noting that Markson kept in touch with Gaddis up until his death in 1998, much of which is housed at the Washington University Libraries.

I have forgotten how I ended up reading Gaddis, but I think it was because of my reading and interest in Markson. I know Markson got me to read Lowry's Under the Volcano (an amazing novel for those who haven't read it, highly recommended).
