As you can see from the column to the left, I’m reading the new Thomas Pynchon Against the Day. I’ll be taking part in a roundtable with my fellow Chums of Chance. I can’t remember where I found this article on Gravity’s Rainbow from the New York Times Book Review in 1973. If I didn’t know better, I might think it was from the New York Review of Books due to the level of writing. It’s too bad we don’t get these kind of reviews anymore in today’s NYTBR.
Cool. Can’t speak for the Pynchon, but The Children’s Hospital is a fascinating book.
