Against the Day
by Thomas Pynchon




Overview -
" Pynchon's] funniest and arguably his most accessible novel." --The New York Times Book Review

"Raunchy, funny, digressive, brilliant." --USA Today

"Rich and sweeping, wild and thrilling." --The Boston Globe

The inimitable Thomas Pynchon has done it again. Hailed as a major work of art by The Wall Street Journal, his first novel in almost ten years spans the era between the Chicago World's Fair of 1893 and the years just after World War I and moves among locations across the globe (and to a few places not strictly speaking on the map at all). With a phantasmagoria of characters and a kaleidoscopic plot, Against the Day confronts a world of impending disaster, unrestrained corporate greed, false religiosity, moronic fecklessness, and evil intent in high places and still manages to be hilarious, moving, profound, and so much more.
