V.

Thomas Pynchon

V., THOMAS PYNCHON’S FIRST NOVEL

PYNCHON, Thomas. V. London: Jonathan Cape, (1963). Octavo, original black cloth, original dust jacket. $600.

First English edition of Pynchon’s first novel.

V.'s far-reaching scope and complexity established Pynchon as one of the most imaginative voices of the postwar era. "Inconclusive, gripping, confusing in outline but convincing in detail, V. is a blackly comic odyssey into the occult corners and bizarre anxieties of 20th-century Europe and America" (Parker, 403). Preceded by the American first edition earlier the same year. Mead A1a.

A fine copy.
