Product description

The quest for V. sweeps us through sixty years and a panorama of Alexandria, Paris, Malta, Florence, Africa and New York. But who, where or what is V.? Bawdy, sometimes sad and frequently hilarious, V. as become a modern classic. This is the first novel by the author of Gravity's Rainbow, and a profoundly impressive and original work in its own right.

Review quote

"A remarkable book" Sunday Telegraph "Screwballs chase alligators in sewers in a chaotic and worlwide chase for V., while literary styles, brilliant and bizarre, chase each other" Books and Bookmen "The book sails with majesty through caverns measureless to man. Few books haunt the waking or sleeping mind, but this is one" Time "Mr Pynchton writes with enormous skill and virtuosity" Times Literary Supplement.
