Against the Day: A Novel
Against the Day: A Novel
by Thomas Pynchon
Staff Pick
Against the Day switches as smoothly from Tom Swift-style "boys adventure" to a Gothic prairie tale in the vein of Cormac McCarthy, as it does from reverence for historical figures and events to explosive iconoclasm. Its world is filled with dirigibles... (read more)

Inherent Vice
Inherent Vice
by Thomas Pynchon
Staff Pick
I'm no pro from Dover, but I think that there are as many ways of looking at a work by Pynchon as he has storylines in each book. Inherent Vice is definitely one of the more approachable works by a guy who can have the reader wading hip-deep through... (read more)

Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life
Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life
by Jon Lee Anderson
Staff Pick
Che Guevara's face can seem ubiquitous these days. Knowing very little about him, I decided to pick up this rather hefty biography by Jon Lee Anderson. I was planning on scanning the 832-page book for the highlights, but after only twenty pages I was... (read more)
