Review:

"A remarkable book" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"Screwballs chase alligators in sewers in a chaotic and worlwide chase for V., while literary styles, brilliant and bizarre, chase each other" ( Books and Bookmen)

"The book sails with majesty through caverns measureless to man. Few books haunt the waking or sleeping mind, but this is one" ( Time)

"Mr Pynchton writes with enormous skill and virtuosity" ( Times Literary Supplement.)

From the Publisher:
