Description:One of two leatherbound copies prepared by the publisher, one of...One of two leatherbound copies prepared by the publisher, one of which went to Pynchon; this one belonged to Pynchon's editor, Ray Roberts. Small bookplate of Ray Roberts on the pastedown, and a letterhead note card identifying the issue laid in. Fine. This collection of stories featured a new introduction by Pynchon.
Pynchon is arguably the most important author in modern American literature. His novels V, The Crying of Lot 49 and Gravity's Rainbow are astoundingly good. This collection is made up of his earliest short stories. They are literate, interesting and entertaining. What they are not, is as fully gripping and fascinating as his later work. If you are already a fan of Pynchon's work, and haven't read these yet, then by all means do so. If you have not read anything by the master, start with V.
