The Internet Is Trying to Kill You (Probably): Thomas Pynchon’s Bleeding Edge --- Bruce Stone | Numéro Cinq
Bruce Stone pens here a stylish, exuberant review essay on the latest Thomas Pynchon novel Bleeding Edge. Phrases like "polymathic autism" and "swarming with goombas of paradox" are alone worth the price of admission (not to mention gorgeous encapsulations of Pynchon's prose). But Stone, himself a literary polymath of sorts, brings all the weight of long reading and intelligent discernment to a serious and important analysis of the legendary American author.
