Did you know that the 8th of May 2013 was Pynchon Day? Well I didn't but it keeps poping up all over the place. I have to admit that I find his writting is complex and I have trouble saying I enjoy it, but in an odd way I do.
I read Gravity's Rainbow again recently and still found it difficult but interesting. I see that Time named the novel as one of the "all-time best" novels. I like this quote from the book,
"If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don't have to worry about answers."
As to the American writer , he seems as complex as his books.
