Description du produit

Extrait

It’s the first day of spring 2001, and Maxine Tarnow, though some still have her in their system as Loeffler, is walking her boys to school. Yes maybe they’re past the age where they need an escort, maybe Maxine doesn’t want to let go just yet, it’s only a couple blocks, it’s on her way to work, she enjoys it, so?

This morning, all up and down the streets, what looks like every Callery Pear tree on the Upper West Side has popped overnight into clusters of white pear blossoms. As Maxine watches, sunlight finds its way past rooflines and water tanks to the end of the block and into one particular tree, which all at once is filled with light.

“Mom?” Ziggy in the usual hurry. “Yo.”

“Guys, check it out, that tree?”

Otis takes a minute to look. “Awesome, Mom.”

“Doesn’t suck,” Zig agrees. The boys keep going, Maxine regards the tree half a minute more before catching up. At the corner, by reflex, she drifts into a pick so as to stay between them and any driver whose idea of sport is to come around the corner and run you over.

Sunlight reflected from east-facing apartment windows has begun to show up in blurry patterns on the fronts of buildings across the street. Two-part buses, new on the routes, creep the crosstown blocks like giant insects. Steel shutters are being rolled up, early trucks are double-parking, guys are out with hoses cleaning off their piece of sidewalk. Unsheltered people sleep in doorways, scavengers with huge plastic sacks full of empty beer and soda cans head for the markets to cash them in, work crews wait in front of buildings for the super to show up. Runners are bouncing up and down at the curb waiting for lights to change. Cops are in coffee shops dealing with bagel deficiencies. Kids, parents, and nannies wheeled and afoot are heading in all different directions for schools in the neighborhood. Half the kids seem to be on new Razor scooters, so to the list of things to keep alert for add ambush by rolling aluminum.

Revue de presse

***A New York Times Notable Book of 2013***

Brilliantly written… a joy to read…Full of verbal sass and pizzazz, as well as conspiracies within conspiracies, Bleeding Edge is totally gonzo, totally wonderful. It really is good to have Thomas Pynchon around, doing what he does best.Michael Dirda, The Washington Post


“A precious freak of a novel, glinting rich and strange, like a black pearl from an oyster unfathomable by any other diver into our eternal souls. If not here at the end of history, when? If not Pynchon, who? Reading Bleeding Edge, tearing up at the beauty of its sadness or the punches of its hilarity, you may realize it as the 9/11 novel you never knew you needed… a necessary novel and one that literary history has been waiting for, ever since it went to bed early on innocent Sept. 10 with a copy of The Corrections and stayed up well past midnight reading Franzen into the wee hours of his novel’s publication day.” —Slate.com


“Are you ready for Thomas (Screaming Comes Across the Sky) Pynchon on the subject of September 11, 2001?... Exemplary… dazzling and ludicrous… Our reward for surrendering expectations that a novel should gather in clarity, rather than disperse into molecules, isn’t anomie but delight. Pynchon himself’s a good companion, full of real affection for his people and places, even as he lampoons them for suffering the postmodern condition of being only partly real.” Jonathan Lethem, New York Times Book Review


Surely now Pynchon must be in line for the Nobel Prize?... Thomas Pynchon, America’s greatest novelist, has written the greatest novel about the most significant events in his country’s 21st century history. It is unequivocally a masterpiece.” —The Scotsman (UK)


The book’s real accomplishment is to claim the last decade as Pynchon territory, a continuation of the same tensions — between freedom and captivity, momentum and entropy, meaning and chaos — through which he has framed the last half-century… As usual, Pynchon doesn’t provide answers but teases us with the hint of closure, leaving us ultimately unsure whether the signals add up to a master plot or merely a series of sinister and unfortunate events. 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. It feels a lot like life.” Wired magazine


The New York of late 2001 was a Pynchon novel waiting to happen, in which the failures of ‘late capitalist’ speculation, in the form of the recently deflated tech bubble, meet 9/11 to form the 21st century’s Year Zero.” New York Observer

Pynchon's prose is irresistible. It's playful and bustling — cheesy puns rub elbows with Big Ideas.  A-” Entertainment Weekly

Brilliant and wonderful… Bleeding Edge chronicles the birth of the now — our terrorism-obsessed, NSA-everywhere, smartphone Panopticon zeitgeist — in the crash of the towers. It connects the dots, the packets, the pixels. We are all part of this story. We are all characters in Pynchon’s mad world. Bleeding Edge is a novel about geeks, the Internet, New York and 9/11. It is funny, sad, paranoid and lyrical. It was difficult to put down. I want to read it again.” —Salon.com


Bleeding Edge takes the messy, funny, and sad all-at-once world we live in and reflects it back to us in a way that I can only call consoling—somebody else out there gets it. No matter how crazy things became in 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.” —Malcolm Jones, Daily Beast/Newsweek

Bleeding Edge may be the book Thomas Pynchon was born to write.” New York Daily News, “Page Views” 

The ingeniously whimsical, accessible story of a New York City fraud investigator who becomes entangled with some very sketchy characters as she tries to get to the bottom of a case involving a tech billionaire.” —O: The Oprah Magazine 

Showstopping…The future that [Pynchon] so precociously, disturbingly foresaw long ago now surges around us. 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.” —Leisl Schillinger, Barnes & Noble

Bleeding Edge is vintage Pynchon, a louche yarn of rollicking doomism. Pynchon is the master of technology-as-metaphor. In previous books—particularly “V.” and “Gravity’s Rainbow”—there is a persistent, shadowy suggestion of an unseen system, mechanisms that underlie the perceived reality of events. And these mechanisms are often manifest in the vagaries of things like rocket science and radio broadcasting tools. In those old books, however, the obscure schema was cast as an almost magical or mystical force, but as Bleeding Edge appears, we have the real thing.”—Seattle Times

Fabulously entertainingBleeding Edge is stuffed with gorgeous passages that sing their longing for all we’ve lost, in trashing the land and ourselves. But such writing is also a stirring call to arms, making clear that the history we’ll make depends on what and how we remember. As Pynchon has been reminding us for 50 years, there’s always more than one way to tell that story.”Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“Pynchon’s Bleeding Edge is a masterpiece of post- and pre-9/11 paranoia.”—Las Vegas Weekly
"A hilarious, shrewd, and disquieting metaphysical mystery." —Booklist (STARRED)


"No one, but no one, rivals Pynchon’s range of language, his elasticity of syntax, his signature mix of dirty jokes, dread and shining decency… Bleeding Edge is a chamber symphony in P major, so generous of invention it sometimes sprawls, yet so sharp it ultimately pierces.” —Publishers Weekly


"A much-anticipated return, and it’s trademark stuff: a blend of existential angst, goofy humor and broad-sweeping bad vibes." —Kirkus Reviews (STARRED)


"Truly your most important reading for the fall... darkly hilarious." —Library Journal

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hooray for Pynchon 20 octobre 2013
Par P. Mccaffrey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I really enjoyed this book. I read it right after finishing Against The Day. I feel that there are very few authors today who write as well as Pynchon. He uses metaphor beautifully, which few writers today do. This book contains a few of his wonderful long wild Faulkner-Kerouac-Coltraneish sentences (check out pages 311-312 in the hardcover edition)and great place descriptions. I wonder if "DeepArcher" is not in part an allusion to Lew Archer, the (anti) hero of Ross MacDonald's wonderful series of detective novels. I think that maybe this book needs to be approached as you approach those novels- not all of the plot twists themselves are so important, rather they serve as a frame for mood, description, language and characterization. (Here I need to give a plug to "The Doomsters" and "Black Money", in my opinion MacDonald's greatest books and a must reads for anyone interested in American literature.)I disagree with those who say that Pynchon's writing has not evolved. His early work saw characters as confluences of historical forces which I feel made his work kind of "chilly", however beginning with "Vineland" he still places his characters in a historical context but there is more of a traditional sense of characterization, I think. Maxine is a fully drawn, living character. I feel that this lends more depth and warmth to his work. Finally, as one who was living in the New York City area on 9/11, I feel that I can say that Pynchon's description of that time is completely accurate and describes the tragedy of that time in a very real, non-sensationalized way.

the writing swings, rollicks, rolls, is darkly humorous and lacks nothing of Pynchon's normal brilliance. The story takes us back to the post dot-com bubble and for the main portion exists in that pre-9/11 world that seems so distant now. Fresh and lively, a pleasure to sit down with

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Challenging and thought-provoking nostalgia for our own time 14 décembre 2013
Par J. Fuchs - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
People who think this book is about 9/11 have totally missed the point. Though wrapped in the language and plot of conspiracies, what Bleeding Edge is really about is nostalgia -- nostalgia for childhood and lost innocence, and for neighborhoods and a world that are constantly changing, even as we move through them.

Bleeding Edge is quite up to Pynchon's best work, but it's still a wonderful read, with shadowy government operatives, narcissistic housewives, and ultra-cool hipsters and techies galore. If it tries a little too hard to capture an era with every sentence, and wanders from time to time, so what? The language is beautiful, the ideas are big and it'll probably make you think more than any 10 other novels you've read this year.

Referencing everything from the Montauk Project (an allegedly secret government program involving aliens and time-travel), to mid-eastern money laundering, Pynchon has created a world where nothing is as it seems and there's no place to hide, pretty ironic given that Pynchon himself is such a shadowy elusive figure.

One word of warning -- don't put this book down while you're in the middle of it for any length of time or you're likely to be totally lost when you pick it back up. Pynchon, as usual, demands one's full attention.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Reality is mutable 27 octobre 2013
Par Erica Friedman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
As a long-time fan of Pynchon, I've always stood on the side of his novels. Not involved with Mason and Dixon, or Thurn and Taxis, I watched with amusement as he pokes at the people and places in his novels. "Bleeding Edge" reads like an alternate reality of my own life on the edge of the dot-com bust, involved in tech without being a techie, 9/11 touching, but not directly hurting me, and watching as our subsequent loss of freedoms was justified by rising stock prices.

Maxine Loeffler, one more too-sane person surrounded by insane circumstances, is Pynchon's strongest protagonist so far.

'Bleeding Edge' is perfect for lovers of Pynchon's fever-dream writing, his 10,000 foot view of life's absurdities and his grasp of the small comforts of life, like a Doc Martin's Cream Soda.

This book is pure New York, pure Pynchon, pure joy.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Pynchon has a new voice and pop culture to work with 17 avril 2014
Par Andrew Lyle Jones - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Bleeding Edge is not Pynchon's most gripping and the place and subject matter Johnathan Lethem has dealt with before, but this take on the gumshoe dime novel involves perhaps Pynchon's most elaborate treatise on the necessity of pop culture in art. Bleeding Edge smells of Pokemon, has the same surprises as Hideo Kojima and uses language in ways so contemporary their relief shows how vast language has come since his last chronicle of the sixties in Inherent Vice. The two novels together comprise some of Pnychon's most elaborate fictional worlds. The New York of Bleeding Edge is rendered in such exacting detail from the Echo and the Bunnymen tracks to the fictional schools based on discarded Freudian schools of thought. It in other words is a bit surreal to read someone so much older than myself render the culture and lingo of a period I remember incredibly clearly with so few faults (there are a few mixed up techno metaphors etc.) but the novel also delivers on his re-embodying of the gum shoe in different guises and the protagonist (Maxine) makes an excellent gum shoe. The novel's only real fault is closure. Fans give it a shot.
