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.
