Devoted fans as well as newbies to Pynchon’s 1973 masterpiece will enjoy and appreciate this erudite guide, now much expanded from the 1988 first edition. Weisenburger (English, Southern Methodist U., Dallas, Texas)–who graciously acknowledges corrections sent to him over the years from readers, including academics in a wide range of disciplines–provides annotation for terms, phrases, and references through the novel in the order in which they occur (references to page and line number is provided for three different editions). Also useful, and thought-provoking, are his initial introduction to the novel’s plot and mind-blowing style, and subsequent introductions on the novel’s four parts and the episodes each contain.
