Synopses & Reviews
Winner of the 1973 National Book Award, Gravity's Rainbow
is a postmodern epic, a work as exhaustively significant to the second half of the twentieth century as Joyce's Ulysses
was to the first. Its sprawling, encyclopedic narrative and penetrating analysis of the impact of technology on society make it an intellectual tour de force.
