Just the other day I was re-reading the Pynchon section in your book (http://www.amazon.com/The-Book-Shopper-Life-Review/dp/1589880560) where you mention his one-liners finding their way into your own vernacular, and about how you and a friend suspected a reclusive neighbor was Pynchon himself. Love this section of the book, yet -- I sheepishly admit -- not enough to brave a Pynchon book.

I saw Crying of Lot 49 at Book Nook the other day, actually picked it up, but didn't buy it. Maybe I need to find a Pynchon reading group.
