I keep wanting to quote the dialogue from this Pynchon. Here's one, with no particular significance, that filled me with glee:

"Fantastic morir soñando here," he informs Maxine, "old Cibao recipe, handed down through the family for generations."

Maxine happens to know it's the owner going in the back and throwing Creamsicles in the blender. She considers letting Windust in on this and is instantly annoyed at how reflexively wiseassed it will sound.

Non-annoying Pynchon?! Will look for.

In, like, February.

Who know? Maybe I'm just liking it because of the UWS Jewcy-ness of its setting, and the rare occasion of its female protagonist. In any case, there it is. No promise about it not carrying the same annoying features as any of the others; it's just that maybe the other two factors temper those?

But lemme know what you think.

I think it was "the UWS Jewcy-ness" that most put me off it. Hope to see you soon, Ms P.

Funny. When it's done in a certain way, I suppose I'm sort of a sucker for it. (Cf., perhaps, my taste in men.)

And yes, soon! I had a bulk of pages that allofasudden took precedence over Mann from November till mid-December, but now I'm deep into Dr. Faustus. Wurst and Gespräch soon, I hope.
