Overview

Winner of the 1973 National Book Award, Gravity’s Rainbow is a postmodern epic, a work as exhaustively significant to the second half of the twentieth century as Joyce’s Ulysses was to the first. Its sprawling, encyclopedic narrative and penetrating analysis of the impact of technology on society make it an intellectual tour de force.

This Penguin Classics deluxe edition features a specially designed cover by Frank Miller along with french claps and deckle-edged paper.

Praise

"Fantastic!… Fantastically large, complex, funny, perplexing, daring, and weird… If I were banished to the moon tomorrow and could take only five books along, this would have to be one of them." –Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, The New York Times
