    Imagine a great American novelist, one who is now a septuagenarian, writing with all the vivacity and bounce of a young man who has just discovered girls. Most of all, imagine sentences and scenes that are so much fun to read that you wish "Inherent Vice" were twice as long as it is. Imagine saying that about a Thomas Pynchon novel.


    Imagine it? Of course I can. I've read all his other novels and said it every time. Thomas Pynchon is one of the most delightful, amusing, brilliant, and thought provoking novelists in history. He's the 20th Century Dickens bridging the millennium. Pynchon is a completely unique voice.
