    Thomas Pynchon's latest novel, Against the Day
      The publication of a new Pynchon novel is an event and has been since, at age 25, the reclusive author dropped V, the story of a quest, in our laps. That first novel announced a gifted writer with the powers of a Joyce, Faulkner or Melville and the mind of an Einstein.
