about

Winner of the 1973 National Book Award, Gravity's Rainbow is a postmodern epic, a work as exhaustively significant to the second half of the twentieth century as Joyce's Ulysses was to the first. Its sprawling, encyclopedic narrative and penetrating analysis of the impact of technology on society make it an intellectual tour de force.

From Our Editors

During the Second World War the Allies discover they have a strange secret weapon in their defence arsenal. This comes in the form of Tyrone Slothrop, an American Lieutenant in London. It seems that every time the Germans send off a V-2 rocket in his direction - and therefore England's - he gets an erection. While studying this remarkable coincidence, he realizes that the roots of his prediction abilities come from experiments performed on him as a child. As he sets out on a quest for the truth, Thomas Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow examines the elasticity of the human mind.
