"[Pynchon's] funniest and arguably his most accessible novel."
-The New York Times Book Review
"Those who climb aboard Pynchon's airship will have the ride of their lives. History lesson, mystical quest, utopian dream, experimental metafiction, Marxist melodrama, Marxian comedy- Against the Day is all of these things and more."
-The Washington Post Book World
"Raunchy, funny, digressive, brilliant."
"Rich and sweeping, wild and thrilling."
-The Boston Globe
"Audacious, bodacious, entropic, synoptic, electric, eclectic, entertaining, hyperbraining, high- roller, tripolar."
-The Philadelphia Inquirer
