Gravity's Rainbow

by: Thomas Pynchon

Publisher: Penguin (1973)

$23.00

Staff Pick by comrade:

Read Gravity's Rainbow and Ulysses and you've got the 20th century in western literary form. Gravity's Rainbow is difficult to start but manage it and few books will ever intimidate you again. The scope and detail alone say more for human potential than most literature.
