Overview

Compiling five short stories originally written between 1959 and 1964, Slow Learner showcases Thomas Pynchon’s writing before the publication of his first novel V. The stories compiled here are “The Small Rain,” “Low-lands,” “Entropy,” “Under the Rose,” and “The Secret Integration,” along with an introduction by Pynchon himself.

Praise

“An exhilarating spectacle of greatness discovering its power.” —The New Republic

"All five of the pieces … have unusual narrative vigor and inventiveness… each contains its moments of Pynchonesque comedy." — Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, The New York Times Book Review
