V – Thomas Pynchon

Spies in Libya, scandal at the ballet, alligators in the New York sewers… Thomas Pynchon‘s bold and unprecedented debut spans decades and continents in a teasing tragicomic carnival of war, espionage, obsession and excess. Bursting with wild youthful inventiveness on every page, the quest to identify the mysterious V combines science and poetry, erudition and idiocy, hilarity and horror into a dazzling depiction of a chaotic world and the frantic behaviour of ┬áhumans in their attempts to understand it.
The second group choice will be announced shortly!
