Inherent Vice, Paperback (January 2015)
It's been a while since Doc Sportello has seen his ex-girlfriend. Suddenly, she shows up with a story about a plot to kidnap a billionaire land developer whom she just happens to be in love with. Doc knows that "love" is another one of those words going around at the moment, like "trip" or "groovy," except that this one usually leads to trouble.
Bleeding Edge, Paperback (September 2014)
Maxine Tarnow is running a nice little fraud investigation business on the Upper West Side, chasing down different kinds of small-scale con artists. She used to be legally certified but her licence got pulled a while back, which has actually turned out to be a blessing because now she can follow her own code of ethics.
Gravity's Rainbow, Paperback (February 2013)» View all books by Thomas Pynchon
We could tell you the year is 1944, that the main character is called Tyrone Slothrop and that he has a problem because bombs are falling across Europe and crashing to earth at the exact locations of his sexual conquests. But that doesn't really begin to cover it.
