Review:

"The best American novel I have read since the war" (Frank Kermode)

"For the reader who has yet to make acquaintance with this important comic talent. . . an appropriate introduction...defiantly, purposefully outrageous" ( Spectator)

" The Crying of Lot 49 contains some of the most elegiac writing about America since Fitzgerald, as well as packing an intense metaphorical punch about revelation, hierophany, meaning and connection that is far too complex to reduce to precis" ( Observer)

Book Description:

A witty, chaotic and brilliant novel from the incomparable Thomas Pynchon.
