Jurgen | 2 comments Anyone else deep into the Cambridge companion? This is a really great and insightful study book by the crème de la crème of Pynchon scholars! Knowing the high level of the Cambridge companions, this one really does itself justice. So far I've really enjoyed all the articles written in them...Hard to pick out my personal favorite.

The book is in three parts:
- novel by novel
- bird's-eye view of novelistic practice
- major themes and topics

Contributors include: Luc Herman, Kathryn Hume, Steven Weisenberger, Amy J. Elias,...

I strongly recommend it to any student, enthusiast or fan of Pynchon who really wants to gasp at the greater ideas and recurring themes we find scattered all through his work.
