Thomas Pynchon

Mandarin 1991
A book review by Danny Yee © 1993
Just the kind of weird and wacky novel one would expect from the author of The Crying of Lot 49, Vineland is a novel about family and sexual obsession and friendship and the weirdness that is the United States. Although it is a serious book, the reader is likely to forget it most of the time, as it is also extremely funny. Vineland is definitely worth a read: bit and pieces of it keep coming to mind even three months after I read it.

April 1993
