Thomas Pynchon - LIFE STORIES
 
 
2/28/1973     Gravity's Rainbow Appears
On this day in 1973 Thomas Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow appeared, causing among the critics the sort of wonder and mayhem which begins the novel, as a V-2 rocket slams into 1944 London: "A screaming comes across the sky. It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now...." The final verdicts ranged from "unreadable" to "masterpiece."
