Description


Soon to be a major motion picture directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, There Will Be Blood) and starring Joaquin Phoenix, Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, Reese Witherspoon, and more
Part noir, part psychedelic romp, all Thomas Pynchon. In the "New York Times" bestseller" Inherent Vice," private eye Doc Sportello surfaces, occasionally, out of a marijuana haze to watch the end of an era.In this lively yarn, Thomas Pynchon, working in an unaccustomed genre that is at once exciting and accessible, provides a classic illustration of the principle that if you can remember the sixties, you weren't there.
It's been a while since Doc Sportello has seen his ex- girlfriend. Suddenly she shows up with a story about a plot to kidnap a billionaire land developer whom she just happens to be in love with. It's the tail end of the psychedelic sixties in L.A., and Doc knows that "love" is another of those words going around at the moment, like "trip" or "groovy," except that this one usually leads to trouble. Undeniably one of the most influential writers at work today, Pynchon has penned another unforgettable book.
