Sep 17, Minutes. It is in New York City, in the lull between the collapse of the dot-com boom and the terrible events of September 11th. Silicon Alley is a ghost town, Web 1. Maxine Tarnow is bleeing a nice little fraud investigation business on the Upper West Side, chasing down different kinds of small-scale con artists.
Otherwise, just your average working mom—two boys in elementary school, an off-and-on situation with her sort of semi-ex-husband Horst, life as normal as it ever gets in the neighborhood—till Maxine starts looking into the finances of a computer-security firm and its billionaire geek CEO, whereupon things begin rapidly to jam onto the subway and head downtown.
Foul play, of course. Will perpetrators be revealed, forget about brought to justice? Will Maxine have to take the handgun out of her purse? Will she and Horst get back together? Will Jerry Seinfeld make an unscheduled guest appearance?
Will accounts secular and karmic be brought into balance?

Who wants to know? It really is good to have Thomas Pynchon around, doing what he does best. If not Pynchon, who? If not here at the end of history, when?
Bleeding Edge – Wikipedia
It is unequivocally a masterpiece. The overall effect is one of amused frustration, of dying to find that one extra piece of information that will help make sense of this overwhelming and vaguely threatening world. Tho,as feels a lot like life. It connects the dots, the packets, the pixels.
We are all part of this story. It is funny, sad, paranoid and lyrical. It was difficult to put down. I want to read it again. No matter how crazy things became tuomas this book, I felt safe as long as I was inside its pages. So of course as soon as I finished it, I started over again.

With Bleeding Edge, he shows that he has mastered the move from the shock of the new to the shock of the now, while cushioning the blow.
Pynchon is the master of technology-as-metaphor. And these mechanisms are often manifest in the vagaries of things like rocket science and radio broadcasting tools. Looking for More Great Reads?
