V. by Thomas Pynchon

Having just been released from the Navy, Benny Profane is content to lead a slothful existence with his friends, where the only real ambition is to perfect the art of “schlemihlhood,” or being a dupe, and where “responsibility” is a dirty word. Among his pals–called the Whole Sick Crew–is Slab, an artist who can’t seem to paint anything other than cheese danishes. But Profane’s life changes dramatically when he befriends Stencil, an active ambitious young man with an intriguing mission–to find out the identity of a woman named V., who knew Stencil’s father during the war, but who suddenly and mysteriously disappeared.

V. by Thomas Pynchon is one of T.C. Boyle’s favorite books
