I was thinking of giving one or two of his novels a try, can anyone recommend a good book of his to start off with?
i think if i'd just jumped straight into one of his longer books i'd have given up on him long ago
I plunged straight in with that one and it took me months. Damn good book, mind.
I thought Vineland was a bit rubbish. Crying of Lot 49, then GR, then some of his early short stories. That's about all you need. V's alright too I suppose. Haven't read his most recent; couldn't be bothered with it.
