One Punk’s Guide to Pynchon Novels By Sean Carswell
The first great thing about a Thomas Pynchon novel: it invites us to see life with more complexity. The world around us is chaos in the purest sense. The second thing about a Pynchon novel: it’s not for everyone.
Sean Carswell is the author of seven books, including the novel Madhouse Fog, the short-story collection The Metaphysical Ukulele, and the nonfiction book Occupy Pynchon. He is one of the founders of Razorcake magazine and Gorsky Press. He’s an associate professor at CSU Channel Islands.
