Gravity's Rainbow
Thomas Pynchon

Thomas Pynchon’s phantasmagoria of arcane knowledge, low humor, high anxiety, and pop culture leads the reader through a disorienting and exhilarating series of imaginative theaters in the waning days of the Second World War. Gravity’s Rainbow is entirely postmodern—and ground breakingly so—in its virtuosic orchestration of disparate materials into a kind of symphony of theme and variation that embodies rather than expresses its sense of paranoia and conspiracy about the ways of a disordered world. (For what are paranoia and conspiracy but a desperate hope for an order that isn’t apparent on the surface of things?)

This book changed my understand of what books could be. Funny, existential, caring, sad, historical, fantastical.
