Pynchon's Juvenilia and Against the Day - Charles Hollander analyzes the juvenilia and the threads linking them to Pynchon's latest work (March 2008, Graat Magazine).

  • I'm not entirely convinced by Hollander's paper. I think he reads too much into the juvenilia and seems a bit too sure that Pynchon intended the "literary feints," as Hollander puts it, but it's a great read by an always fascinating Pynchon scholar. Bleakhouse 10:16, 9 April 2008 (MST)
