Vineland is a 1990 novel by Thomas Pynchon, a postmodern fiction set in California, United States in 1984, the year of Ronald Reagan's reelection.[1] Through flashbacks by its characters, who have lived the sixties in their youth, the story accounts for the free spirit of rebellion of that decade, and describes the traits of the "fascistic Nixonian repression" and its War on Drugs that clashed with it; and it articulates the slide and transformation that occurred in U.S. society from the 1960s to the 1980s.

Review:

"A major political novel about what America has been doing to itself, to its children, all these many years...One of America's great writers has, after long wanderings down his uncharted roads, come triumphantly home" -- Salman Rushdie * New York Times Book Review * "Vintage stuff - funny, fantastically inventive, packed with improbable erudition" * Times Literary Supplement * "A essential novel of our fin de siecle, a finger pointing the way out of the 1980s" * USA Today * "His descriptive powers are breathtaking...Pynchon proves once again to be the master of what might be called the highbrow conspiracy thriller" * Wall Street Journal * "One of the funniest, most cleverly written, superbly characterised and beautifully structured books that I have read by a living author" * Time Out *
