Reviews

"A puzzle, an intrigue, a literary and historical tour de force." -- San Francisco Examiner

"The comedy crackles, the puns pop, the satire explodes." -- New York Times

"Mr. Pynchon's satirical eye doesn't miss a thing, including rock n' roll singers right wing extremists, and the general subculture of Southern California." -- Library Journal

"[A] spectacular tale. . . . The work of a virtuoso with prose. . . . His intricate symbolic order is akin to that of Joyce's Ulysses." -- Chicago Tribune

"Pynchon is again whispering something in our ear about the meaning of coincidence, the possibility of recurrence in history, and the circularity of time. . . . . The Crying of Lot 49 is one of those mystery novels that can't be solved." -- New York Review of Books

"Remarkable. . . . The Crying of Lot 49 resembles metaphysical poetry in the range of its allusions and the curiosity of its creator. Consequently, the book is always surprising." -- Washington Post
