Bleeding Edge Free read ´ 2 Estamos en Nueva York en 2001 durante el periodo de calma ue transcurrió entre el desmoronamiento del boom de las puntocom y los terribles sucesos del 11 de Septiembre Silicon Alley es una ciudad fantasma la web 10 está en plena edad del pavo Google todavía no ha salido a Bolsa y a Microsoft aún se la considera el Imperio del Mal Es posible ue ya no corra tanto dinero como en el momento ?. Okay here s what I think women need to read this book Looking over the reviews I note that most are from men who have read everything Pynchon has written I hadn t read anything by him no not even Gravity s Rainbow and I thought the time was right for me to begin He is considered a writer of great stature and I couldn t remember why I ignored him This is a valentine to women Even the title refers to women in all its interpretations The bloody edge of a knife held against the neck of the forces that will subjugate us the monthly bleeding forward edge of an insurgency resistant to control the bleeding heart of a mother s love for her children and the fury that unleashes itself when they are threatened This story is about cool mostly calculating sometimes resistance against the machine And it is so funny I found myself shaking with laughter about three uarters of the way through His humor is cumulative At some point you have to crack a smile snort at a joke choke out a guffaw I also didn t know Pynchon was reclusive My first thought that came to mind when learning this was that he doesn t like the rest of us very much and can t stand to interact But that doesn t appear to be the case from reading this book Don t think for a moment that because he is not in view we are not in view He is relentless in his observation prodding and measuring our postures and attitudes He apes us cans us for future use Now I know why he insists on anonymity the better to catch us at our unconscious most bestBut he likes us He is gentle with his characters and the characters are us Except Gabriel Ice Pynchon is not nice to Ice the cold industrialist who will collaborate with the forces of evil to achieve power at any cost to others There is a thick vein of paranoia pushing the narrative forward paranoia s the garlic in life s kitchenyou can never have enough Pynchon is described in articles about him as an incomparable mimic and in this latest novel he captures the speech attitudes and manners of a Jewish mother in 2001 New York prescisely though perhaps with wit and humor than we usually enjoy there This is a man who mines deeply what he encounters in his experienceThe first 85 pages or so may have been deliberately obscure to keep out day trippers perhaps but starting any book is complicated and this has lots of characters to introduce including the Deep Web We all get lost there the first time in He tells us to hold on It s all right the dialogue boxes assure her it s part of the experience part of getting constructively lost After this point he becomes positively lucid He helps us along by including a woman for those of us whose eyes glaze over without a woman in the story In fact he makes her the lead Maxine She is a fraud investigator who s had her license revoked leaving her free to use slightly less than perfectly straight methods to find out about her clients and the objects of their scrutiny She can also pack a Beretta I told you forensic accounting was hot check out the Ava Lee series by Ian HamiltonMaxine is a mother first and last wife and skeptic with antennae for a scam She enjoys a wide circle of dubious contacts on the margins and has an erotic liaison with an ambiguous hosiery shredding King Lud Windust a government double agent In the post internet boom of the nineties one firm hashslingrz the brainchild of Gabriel Ice has come on her radar This feast of symbols has a larger message that is not too difficult to understand but mostly it is just a fun ride Not having encountered Pynchon before gave me an advantage perhaps I certainly didn t think he was difficult than others I have read Bola o for one Pamuk for another And he is a lot funnier I did find myself wondering who is this guyLittle is known of Pynchon the man but a few souls have attempted to share what they ve found out including a 2013 vulturecom article by Boris Kachka For much of his life he would flee crowds and cities dipping a toe into cultures and communities and then leaving and skewering them in turn So this is what I ve been able to glean about him from reading the book he watches a lot of movies he listens to music he has a wide circle of friends who preserve his deliberate inconspicuousness He listens He observes But does he read Voraciously Everything But does he read novels Recent novels I think he does I trust he does I like to think Pynchon has a measure of stability and pleasure in his home life now Bleeding Edge doesn t have the emptiness and alienation I associate with someone who is completely outside the life the rest of us enjoy He is one of usI wish him well Good vibes coming your wayThe following writings will help immeasurably with your understanding of the novel For a writer Pynchon has a remarkably small body of published work but he is consistentPynchon on SlothPynchon Review of Love in the Time of Cholera Is it OK to be a Luddite The only other thing I would add which I did not mention before is that Pynchon is suggesting that the surface web has devolved into crass commercialism and rubbish burying the promise of an unleashing of creativity and knowledge sharing that was so evident at its inception This has been noted by Jaron Lanier in his book Who Owns the Future and continues to rankle those who had a large part in shaping our experience to date We need to be paranoid about who is monitoring and monetizing our data Pynchon says Yep And well he goes furtherthat old radical

Thomas Pynchon ¸ 2 Review

Bleeding Edge Free read ´ 2 Ro las cosas se complican No tarda en verse metida en líos con un camello en una lancha motora art déco un perfumista profesional obsesionado con la loción para el afeitado de Hitler un matón neoliberal con problemas de calzado «elementos» de la mafia rusa y varios blogueros hackers programadores y emprendedores algunos de los cuales empiezan a aparecer muertos en extrañas circunstanci. Bleeding Edge begins after the dotcom crash and takes us through to a few months after the events of September 11 It is a portrait of New York during this period A lovably scruffy comedy of remarriage as the Publishers Weekly review calls it and a really wonderful piece of urban literature keenly detailing the visible and invisible environs of New York City and its psyche at that time The back of the advance reading copy I got calls it a historical romance That too is accurate It s also a very funny very Pynchonian crime thriller Think Raymond Chandler as Jewish mother There s a strip club named Joie de Beavre Dividing any writer s output into categories is problematic but the impression I got while reading the first three hundred or so pages of Bleeding Edge was that it was like Vineland or Inherent Vice than Pynchon s other work while also reading a bit like a revision of The Crying of Lot 49 at times Maxine is reminiscent in many ways of Oedipa Maas In other words this book feels for most of its length like an accessible read and I know that s problematic too relative to Gravity s Rainbow or Against the Day Then the events of September 11 enter the novel s world and they immediately alter the way this book reads The stunning way Pynchon handles the impact of September 11 on these characters and on New York and on the USA s mentality has a retroactive impact on the first two thirds of the book and on any retrospective thought about the bookI doubt I m the only person who wondered when this novel was announced what Pynchonian paranoia would look like when it met the Information Age or less approaching full stride andor when it met the events of September 11 What this book does with paranoia is utterly fascinating I think I d have to read Bleeding Edge again before attempting any lit crit type analysis of paranoia s role in this novel vs its role in say The Crying of Lot 49 or in Gravity s Rainbow So I won t attempt any such analysis But I ll say that just as a reader as an admirer of Pynchon s work I really dug reading this book s rendering of paranoia of the Information Age and post September 11 versions of paranoia Differences and similarities between paranoia as rendered in this book and paranoia as rendered in Pynchon s other books are worth noting and smarter people or people or less exactly as smart as I am as in the future version of me when I ve thought about this some will likely comment on this stuff elouently In many ways and maybe it s just because I haven t read many of the other contemporary novels that probably exist and deal with the internet and its impact on today s world Bleeding Edge does a better job than any other work of fiction I ve read of detailing the exact weird realities and exactly what s weird about those realities of living with this stuff and all it entails yes for the paranoiac but also just for everyday life Puts a lot of stuff into perspective that we probably really need a seriously great fiction writer like Pynchon to put into perspective Bleeding Edge is linear and straightforward relative to some of Pynchon s other work though Maxine s uest makes for an endlessly complicating adventure with a stellar cast of supporting characters and relentlessly multiplying red herrings But the book s weight and depth both grow and grow apparent as it goes along though it only briefly and appropriately stops being funny I think this is ultimately a scary and profound book but there s of course lots of fun to be had even with fairly serious stuff The Wahhabi Transreligious Friendship WTF Fund Pynchon is of course a master of portraying pop culture regardless of which time period is in uestion He manages here to find space even for a Kenan and Kel reference Nobody s better than Pynchon at communicating the full range of human experience This is partly a virtue of the high low divide meaning absolutely nothing to Pynchon but he collapses that distinction in a much less trivial way than most writers have since the whole pomo thing got started Very few writers can write novels that are real funny and real frightening real serious and real ridiculous real human and real artificial Pynchon s books are all these things at once Bleeding Edge is no exception This is a serious historical novel one that expresses real important truths about the human condition whether specific to the age we live in internet stuff terrorism and other stuff or universal love this being emphatically one of the better love stories I ve read and paranoia and other stuff It s also a lovehate letter to NYC and the USA It s also one of the funniest books I ve ever read It s also a paradise of language and style Plus none of this stuff makes the whole thing fragmented or disjointed Plus the stuff Pynchon writes about whether love sex paranoia violence whatever he s also capable of evoking their corresponding emotions So it s never this distant exercise and instead it s always immediate You get the ideaThere s an impulse somewhere in my gut to call this one of my favourite Pynchon novels but that s not the kind of distinction worth making because there really aren t minor and major novels by Thomas Pynchon This is not one of my better reviews I m afraid a fact made embarrassing by my having had the honour of receiving an advance copy and being one of the first people to review this book on GR But I hope I ve communicated somewhat at least why and how Bleeding Edge offered me a glimpse as Pynchon s stuff always does of the heights of literary experience and of its value to us as human beings Or something like that So uh not a disappointment Kiss of Flame The Dragons Virgin Tribute #1 named Joie de Beavre Dividing any writer s output into categories is
