Product description


The best seller described as the kind of Ulysses which Joyce might have written if he had been a Boeing engineer with a fetish for quadrille paper ― Irish Examiner

Pynchon’s masterpiece. -- John Sutherland ― Guardian

Thomas Pynchon gives us 20th-century fiction's finest memento mori. -- John Sutherland ― The Times

This stunner is already classed with Moby Dick and Ulysses. Set in Europe at the end of WWII, with the V2 as the White Whale, the novel's central characters race each other through a treasure hunt of false clues, disguises, distractions, horrific plots and comic counterplots to arrive at the formula which will launch the Super Rocket... Impossible here to convey the vastness of Pynchton's range, the brilliance of his imagery, the virtuosity of his style and his supreme ability to incorporate the cultural miasma of modern life ― Vogue

Pynchon leaves the rest of the American lierary establishment at the starting gate...the range over which he moves is extraordinary, not simply in terms of ideas explored but also in the range of emotions he takes you through ― Time Out

3.0 out of 5 stars Vintage edition of Gravity’s rainbow.
By ngur on 12 October 2020
My first copy of Thomas Pynchon. I have been wanting to read it for quite a long time. The current situation in 2020 has been a blessing in disguise enabling me to sit down and read on books such as Gravity’s rainbow.
This copy is published by Vintage. It’s a paperback which I prefer when the book is this thick and consequently heavy. The fonts size are consistent throughout ( which I had to mention after having bought other books with inconsistent fonts; they were irritating especially on long reads). The only downfall is that I paid ₹1291 for a book which costed ₹599.
