I don t usually finish a book and start a review in the same breath But I also don t usually allow myself to read than one of an author s works within a calendar year many books little time etc though of course Stephen King would be this year s other exception because the Tower all things yield to it T Ruggs you magnificant bastard I hope you know how many personal rules I m violating because you re the first time since auspiciously picking up my first collection of Bukowski poems that I ve been able to add a This Writer Changed My Life For Always notch to my literary bedpost Reading Vineland confirmed what Gravity s Rainbow left me suspecting I bloody love Thomas Pynchon RillyFinishing Gravity s Rainbow left me with an almost obscene urge to help myself to another serving of Pynchon which is an urge I ve been fighting for months now I finally caved intending to take on V but settling for Vineland because part of the joy of Pynchon is the inherent madness and I just can t handle another meaty tome yet the latter weighs in at a few pages shy of 400 the former uh does most assuredly not And because I haven t talked about GR enough I am still a little battered from that experience my opinion on bananas might be forever changed too I needed something a little less daunting first Enter Vineland This book was so good Now being able to pinpoint a Pynchonian pattern a few musical outbursts sleuthing plots oddball character names stunning tangents that really aren t that tangential after all a natural vocabulary only found in the most ruthless of Scrabble opponents helped me identify what I adore most about Pynchon s prose It s his ability to concoct some of the most overtly zany scenes in literature to confront the reader with these in your face storms of hilarity for the sake of maximizing the subtle tragedies he gently lets the story consider leaving the reader to marinate in sadness It s an effect that would be any mixture of sloppy condescending formulaic or tedious if attempted by anyone else but Pynchon makes it work The real success is that his characters who need be sympathetic are so when someone realizes that her best days are behind her or comes to the dawning realization that he s being used by an entire government or has an ugly epiphany about the mother she never knew it is the most heartbreaking scene in the world As for the effort involved in decoding the obscure references that are sprinkled throughout Pynchon s books as liberally as the Bacon Bits on any salad worth eating I was deeply grateful that T Ruggs s novel begins the same year as I did which meant I caught waywayWAAAAY cultural allusions this time The narrative flows better when I m not running to a secondary source every three lines and I appreciated the opportunity to enjoy this book less haltingly which isn t to say that I didn t need to have a few reference materials handy There were enough hazy hippie memories to keep me on my toes though I caught a number of those as often as I had a flutter of joyful recognition every time The Doors or Zeppelin or Pink Floyd or some other People s Republic of Rock and Roll favorite got a shout outI feel a reread of The Crying of Lot 49 and maybe Inherent Vice in my future Color me fucking amped
