And I have no idea what happened. What just happened? Is anything real? General post-Pynchon confusion etc. Any other Pynchon fans out there? Do you actually understand his stuff? Does it even matter, or can it be enjoyed purely on a moment-by-moment basis without really comprehending the larger story, insofar as there even is a story? And, if that's the case, is that even a valid approach to writing? SO MANY QUESTIONS.
