Immaculate unread copy.
The Crying of Lot 49 is the shortest novel published by American author Thomas Pynchon. The narrative follows Oedipa Maas, a young Californian woman, who begins to embrace a conspiracy theory as she possibly unearths a centuries-old conflict between two mail distribution companies; only one of these companies, Thurn and Taxis, actually existed (1806–67) and was the first private firm to distribute postal mail. Like most of Pynchon’s output, Lot 49 is often described as postmodernist literature. Time included the novel in its “TIME 100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005”.
“Full of sadness, terror, love and flamboyance… The mayor character is really Pynchon himself.”- The New York Times
