Summary:

Calling Thomas Pynchon a "virtuoso with prose," the Chicago Tribune compares his work to James Joyce's Ulysses. Pynchon, winner of the National Book Award, has shocked, enthralled, and delighted fans for more than 40 years with his satire and wit. Quite unexpectedly, Mrs. Oedipa Maas finds herself the executor of the estate of Pierce. Inverarity, a man she used to know in a more-or-less intimate fashion. When Oedipa heads off to Southern California to sort through Pierce's affairs, she becomes ensnared in a hilarious and puzzling worldwide conspiracy.
