Mason & Dixon

Surely one of the greatest books ever, by Thomas Pynchon.

Took me about five or six attempts over three years to read it. It's all in authentic eighteenth century English, with contemporary punctuation. And a challenging delight to read.

Have now reached attempt number 4 on Gravity's Rainbow. It's *very* difficult. But I'll do it. One day.

I've tried Gravity's Rainbow three times now...and always seem to put it down for year-long "breaks." Even in the first 70 pages he does some incredible stuff with words. I've been told by many that it is a work of genius. Will pick it up again...and good luck to you, dickieC!
