Ears Stoneward

Pynchon continues to boggle. Yes, it has been 15 years since I last read V. but aspects of the novel have completely eluded my memory. The overture to Melville's Confidence Man is stellar in the Stencil sections and the community of sewer rats being spiritually advised by a human priest is remarkable sortie, especially when considering that Lawrence Norfolk reworked the material in The Pope's Rhinoceros.
