This was pulled from Diesel Books - only a few months ago - where it was MUCH higher in price.
Sony is the only place, as mentioned, that carries this title.
Thomas Pynchon is an important American writer. Doctoral dissertations are written on him. He is studied, revered, reviled, argued over, debated.
This title is supposed to be much more accessible to the general public than most of his other works. It's a tribute to noir in books and films.
I'm going to start reading this as soon as I finish my current book. Everything else is going to be shelved out the back door, so to speak, and dumped into the "bin of lesser fiction" - so to speak.
"No man waits for Pynchon." [Well, maybe a woman; but then again, maybe not.]
“How to Write the First 3 Paragraphs of YOUR Indie Novel” - by Max Waxwelp1) Always write 3 sentences of exposition; 2) now create some dialogue, preferably no more than 2 sentences; and 3) make certain the dialogue is either inane or humorous. Example:
“Bob, I did not know you wore yellow suspenders,” Sally remarked.
“Gee, Sally, those are not suspenders. I am wearing yellow underwear today,” Bob revealed.
The dialogue above will help produce at least 100 more pages of dialogue.
