The Crying Of Lot 49

Obtuse, deliberately so, but enthralling. Sentences that demand to be read three times and a thousand oblique references that I missed most of, it comes perilously close to being unreadable, but has a sense of humour that is irrepressible. By turns biting satire and joyful farce, it unexpectedly becomes a meditation on modern life in America and dealing with grief.
