Welcome to AtB!

Annotate The Bastards! is a mobile web app that works as an alternate interface to display the detailed annotations for the novels of William Gaddis that can be found on


The Recognitions JR Carpenters Gothic A Frolic Of His Own Agape Agape


While reading JR I found it difficult to use the annotations on on anything other than a full computer with monitor, and that is just not ideal. I pulled together this mobile web app so that I could use my iPhone to read along with the novel.
