9780330289405: Slow Learner

Thomas Pynchon's literary career was launched not with the release of his widely acclaimed first novel, "V., " but with the publication in literary magazines of the five stories collected here. In his introduction to "Slow Learner" the author reviews his early work with disarming candor and recalls the American cultural landscape of the early post-Beat era in which the stories were written. "Time" magazine described this introductory essay as "Pynchon's first public gesture toward autobiography."

About the Author:

Thomas Pynchon was born in 1937. His books include V, Gravity's Rainbow, Vineland, Mason & Dixon, Against the Day, Inherent Vice, and Bleeding Edge.

Review:

All five of the pieces ... have unusual narrative vigor and inventiveness. Each establishes its own special mood ... and each contains its moments of Pynchonesque comedy.... -- The New York Times Book Review, Christopher Lehmann-Haupt
