Review quote

"A masterly study of subjectivity in Pynchon's work. Berressem knows his theory -- Lacan, Derrida, Baudrillard -- and his Pynchon inside out. The reader interested in theory and the reader interested in practical criticism will both find much to admire and use here." -- John M. Krafft, a founding editor, Pynchon Notesshow more
