    E–pub Free Bleeding Edge by Thomas Pynchon Along with Yellow Dog this gets my vote for the worst novel ever written by an author capable of genius in his prime A characteristic it shares with Yellow Dog is that there’s a sense the author is refusing to grow up that he’s still straining to be cool like some middle class teenager strewing his speech with street patois I’m baffled how anyone managed to find the emotional engagement to actually remember who th

REVIEW Bleeding Edge

Thomas Pynchon î 6 REVIEW FREE READ ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB î Thomas Pynchon REVIEW Bleeding Edge õ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Estamos en Nueva York en 2001 durante el periodo de calma ue transcurrió entre el desmoronamiento del boom de las puntocom y los terribles sucesos del 11 de Septiembre Silicon Alley es una ciudad fantasma la web 10 está en plena edad del pavo Google todavía no ha salido a Bolsa y a Microsoft aún se la considera el Imperio del Mal Es posible ue ya no corra tanto dinero como en el momento ?. The first thing to know about Pynchon books is that they fall into two pretty distinct categories with Gravity s Rainbow and Against the Day on one side the side of sprawling epic of insane depth of characterization and range of setting these are books that you don t really read you just dive on into in all their jagged crazy bottomless mystery I once said that reading Against the Day was less like reading a book than reading a chunk of a river and I stand by thatThen on the other side you have the wacky capers of Vineland Inherent Vice and Bleeding Edge I suppose these books are eually immersive eually replete with paranoia and feverish rambling and myriad in and out characters and unexpected song breaks and punning turned into high art this one has a titty bar called Joie de Beavre to give just one shining example But while his historical epics flout all traditional novelistic conventions by blowing them completely on their ass the modernist novels do it in a different way one mostly of caricaturization The characters are cartoony the hijinks are bananas the twists and dips and feints are piled so helter skelter that it s generally impossible to have any real idea what s going on let alone where it s all headed Also they re so slangy which is always such a shock from erudite genius Pynchon he uses spoze for suppose rilly for really sez for says that sort of super casual conversational thing Rilly it s all broken phrasing and grammatically incomprehensible sleights of hand a copyeditor s nightmare I can only imagine Also unexpected so much pop culture minutia from 80s fashion accessories to obscure Norwegian death metal bands to a t shirt reading ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US which now that I think of it is actually an anachronism since this book takes place in 2001 Jk not an anachronism I have been summarily corrected Anyway What is actually in this book you ask Well for once the back cover blurb is pretty well done if you want to go ahead and read that It s like historical fiction but set in 2001 starring sexy Maxine mother of two and bad ass uasi legit fraud investigator She starts looking into some small financial thing with a hot shit web property which is really a string that leads her into a gigantic tangled ball of lies and deceptions and insider trading and money laundering and dotcom craziness and maybe down into Hell itself sort of There s a plethora of bonkers characters along the way like a Russian ex gulag rapper duo a foot fetishist hacker a tween krav maga expert a surfer acupuncturist a Buddhist kids videogame designer who accidentally maybe creates a parallel universe Furbys with tracking devices under their fur the Journal of Memespace Cartography a haunted hotel pool and on and on and onAnother way of looking at this book and another way that Pynchon seriously could not give a shit about the way a novel is supposed to be constructed is that it s a nearly unending string of deus ex machina things and people constantly just happening to appear on the scene at the exact moment they re needed Like at one point our heroine is stumped about a crime investigation having already been on the scene and uncovered absolutely nothing and she s got an appointment with her acupuncturist who is late and it just so happens that the sexy stranger in the waiting room with her is a professional nose so of course through a series of clever subterfuges she sneaks him over to the crime scene and he recognizes the lingering whiff of an obsolete cologne in the air which gets her that much closer to figuring out whodunit The whole book is like this In a random bar bathroom in the caf at her new gym wandering around lost on the Upper West Side at a slinky dotcom party everywhere she happens to go why wouldn t you know it There s just the person she needed to see There s even a character whose job is literally a secret delivery man you never call him but when he shows up at your door he s carrying exactly the bootleg VHS tape or the secret dossier or the encrypted flash drive that holds the very information you so desperately need So yeah it s all kind of strange With these Pynchons it s always a wild ride a fun but very intense disbelief suspension a wonky weird ass spin through a thickety overgrown maze world Which I like but don t exactly love not all the time anywayExcept that his language his language his language oh my god It is so bizarre and brilliant and weirdly beautiful sometimes that it literally stops me in my tracks I ll just be toodling along the pages half attentioned in the midst of some strange gathering peopled with characters I only semi remember who are talking about things I only sort of understand words flowing by beneath my eyes to the point where I m mostly only noticing the rhythm lost and lost in his endless twists and feints and then will come these passages that just slam through and make me gasp with joy or rearrange my thinking in such a profound way that I don t know how I even was beforeHere s a paragraph for you and if you don t react to it with a literal tingling in your fingertips and the ends of your hair just please shut up and don t tell me about it Sometimes down in the subway a train Maxine s riding on will slowly be overtaken by a local or an express on the other track and in the darkness of the tunnel as the windows of the other train move slowly past the lighted panels appear one by one like a series of fortune telling cards being dealt and slid in front of her The Scholar The Unhoused The Warrior Thief The Haunted Woman After a while Maxine has come to understand that the faces framed in these panels are precisely those out of all the city millions she must in the hour be paying most attention to in particular those whose eyes actually meet her own they are the day s messengers from whatever the Beyond has for a Third World where the days are assembled one by one under non union conditions Each messenger carrying the props reuired for their character shopping bags books musical instruments arrived here out of darkness bound again into darkness with only a minute to deliver the intelligence Maxine needs At some point naturally she begins to wonder if she might not be performing the same role for some face looking back out another window at herThank you Tom you marvelous mad genius May I never look at a subway ride the same way again
