by

The Crying of Lot 49 (Perennial Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The highly original satire about Oedipa Maas, a woman who finds herself enmeshed in a worldwide conspiracy, meets some extremely interesting characters, and attains a not inconsiderable amount of self knowledge.

Review:

"Mr. Pynchon's satirical eye doesn't miss a thing, including rock 'n roll singers right wing extremists, and the general subculture of Southern California." Library Journal

Review:

"A puzzle, an intrigue, a literary and historical tour de force with a strongly European flavor." San Francisco Examiner

Review:

"The work of a virtuoso with prose...akin to that of Joyce's Ulysses." Chicago Tribune

Review:

"The comedy crackles, the puns pop the satire explodes." New York Times
