Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gosh What to say about this? Probably the best and most accessible intro to Pynchon for the uninitiated and intimidated. I've read this three times and enjoy it more every time. So funny, so strange, and what ridiculous sentences ... nobody writes like this ... nobody thinks like this. Not as good as Gravity's Rainbow, but, really, what is?

Editorial Reviews

"Mr. Pynchon's satirical eye doesn't miss a thing, including rockn' roll singers right wing extremists, and the general subculture of Southern California." (Library Journal)
