Thomas Pynchon is also the author of the novels V., The Crying of Lot 49, Gravity's Rainbow, Vineland, Mason & Dixon, Against the Day, Inherent Vice, and Bleeding Edge.
"The apprentice work of a major novelist makes better reading than
the mature productions of a dozen minor ones...Readers who discover
Pynchon's stories now will find an exhilarating spectacle of
greatness discovering its powers."
