Gravity's Rainbow (Classics Deluxe Edition) (Paperback)
(Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)
Penguin Classics, 9780143039945, 784pp.
Publication Date: October 31, 2006
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.
