9780141180632: Vineland (Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics)

A spaced-out story of Zoyd Wheeler's passion for Frenesi Gates finding fulfilment in his love for their daughter, Prairie. It has been described as "a meditation on myth-making - historical, personal, cinematic and televised". By the author of "V", "The Crying of Lot 49" and "Gravity's Rainbow".

Review:

"A major political novel about what America has been doing to itself, to its children, all these many years...One of America's great writers has, after long wanderings down his uncharted roads, come triumphantly home" (Salman Rushdie New York Times Book Review)

"Vintage stuff - funny, fantastically inventive, packed with improbable erudition" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"A essential novel of our fin de siecle, a finger pointing the way out of the 1980s" ( USA Today)

"His descriptive powers are breathtaking...Pynchon proves once again to be the master of what might be called the highbrow conspiracy thriller" ( Wall Street Journal)

"One of the funniest, most cleverly written, superbly characterised and beautifully structured books that I have read by a living author" ( Time Out)

Book Description:

'Exhilarating and wretchedly funny. The most important and mysterious writer of his generation' - Time

Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 1997. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Open market ed. 208 x 150 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Vineland, a zone of blessed anarchy in northern California, is the last refuge of hippiedom, a culture devastated by the sobriety epidemic, Reaganomics, and the Tube. Here, in an Orwellian 1984, Zoyd Wheeler and his daughter Prairie search for Prairie s long-lost mother, a Sixties radical who ran off with a narc. Vineland is vintage Pynchon, full of quasi-allegorical characters, elaborate unresolved subplots, corny songs ( Floozy with an Uzi ), movie spoofs (Pee-wee Herman in The Robert Musil Story), and illicit sex (including a macho variation on the infamous sportscar scene in V.). For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.
