“A puzzle, an intrigue, a literary and historical tour de force.” —San Francisco Examiner

The Crying of Lot 49 is Thomas Pynchon''s highly original classic satire of modern America, about Oedipa Maas, a woman who finds herself enmeshed in what would appear to be an international conspiracy.

When her ex-lover, wealthy real-estate tycoon Pierce Inverarity, dies and designates her the coexecutor of his estate, California housewife Oedipa Maas is thrust into a paranoid mystery of metaphors, symbols, and the United States Postal Service. Traveling across Southern California, she meets some extremely interesting characters, and attains a not inconsiderable amount of self-knowledge.

Thomas Pynchon was born in 1937. His books includeV,Gravity''s Rainbow,Vineland,Mason & Dixon,Against the Day,Inherent Vice, andBleeding Edge.
