Oedipa Maas discovers that she has been made executor of a former lover's estate. The performance of her duties sets her on a strange trail of detection, in which bizarre characters crowd in to help or confuse her. But gradually, death, drugs, madness and marriage combine to leave Oepida in isolation on the threshold of revelation. Suffused with rich satire, chaotic brilliance and wild humour, The Crying of Lot 49 is one of Pynchon’s best novels.

"‘An exuberant, off-beat talent…wildly funny, but the comedy is as black and turbulent as storm clouds’ INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY ‘defiantly, purposefully outrageous’ SPECTATOR"
