It has been a long time since I read a fictional book. For various uncertain reasons I have only read non-fiction for the past several years; I am tired of non-fiction and for the past few weeks I have been on a quest for a book that grabs me and says: “Read THIS!”
I have been enjoying Gore Vidal’s Burr; although a wonderful book of historical fiction, my desire is for a more mind expanding literary challenge. Perhaps Thomas Pynchon’s work? I am going to start with V.
A fascinating video about Pynchon is linked below; it is amusing to watch how, near the end, the narrators analyze video footage as they search (in vain?) for an image of Pynchon — it reminded me of the old videos of the ever-elusive big-foot roaming in the woods, too funny.
