Synopsis

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.

Customer Reviews

The second Thomas Pynchon book I've had the pleasure of reading and I can't wait for the next. He quite simply conveys a roller coaster of a story all whilst you as his subservient reader follows (rather happily I might add) in what is a mindboggling beautiful journey for the mysterious V. Pynch may be a little too smart for a some but not once will you feel patronised simply enlightened (just have dictionary to hand..) I won't says it's for everyone but if you enjoy a book with a story of epic proportions accompanied with beautifully imagined characters as any great book should be and have then V is worth your time. And there's nothing wrong with learning new things and words along the way to impress people at a dinner party!
