Notes Omensetter's Luck is the first novel by William H. Gass, published in 1966.
Gass began writing Omensetter's Luck around 1954. He was working on the last chapter of the novel in 1958 when the manuscript was stolen off of his desk, forcing him to begin rewriting the book from scratch. He says of this time, "I was in a funk, a kind of fugue state. I reconstructed the book by working almost nonstop for about six months." The novel was eventually published in 1966 and has gone through many editions, both foreign and domestic, and remains in print today.
