8vo., black stamped yellow/grey cloth, 7-183pp. The author's second novel, preceded by V. (1963), and followed by Gravity's Rainbow (1973). "'The Crying of Lot 49' reads like an episode withheld from his first, the much-acclaimed 'V.', published three years ago. Pynchon's technical virtuosity, his adaptations of the apocalyptic-satiric modes of Melville, Conrad, and Joyce, of Faulkner, Nathanael West, and Nabokov, the saturnalian inventiveness he shares with contemporaries like John Barth and Joseph Heller, his security with philosophical and psychological concepts, his anthropological intimacy with the off-beat--these evidences of extraordinary talent in the first novel continue to display themselves in the second. And the uses to which he puts them are very much the same." (Richard Poirier, New York Times, 1 May 1966). A fine copy. Note : Please contact seller to clarify mailing options and costs.
