Publisher Description

"Brilliantly written...a joy to read...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

"Exemplary...dazzling and ludicrous." - Jonathan Lethem, The New York Times Book Review


It is 2001 in New York City, in the lull between the collapse of the dot-com boom and the terrible events of September 11th. 

Maxine Tarnow runs a fine little fraud investigation business on the Upper West Side. All is ticking over nice and normal, until she starts looking into the finances of a computer-security firm and its billionaire geek CEO. She soon finds herself mixed up with a drug runner in an art deco motorboat, a professional nose obsessed with Hitler’s aftershave, a neoliberal enforcer with footwear issues, and an array of bloggers, hackers, code monkeys, and entrepreneurs, some of whom begin to show up mysteriously dead. 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 Jerry Seinfeld make an unscheduled guest appearance? Will accounts secular and karmic be brought into balance?

Hey. Who wants to know?

Jeannie Berlin rules

The, at times, challenging narration is made up for by the fact that the voice belongs to Jeannie Berlin. Notable elements include: hwgaahwgh.com and AMBOPEDIA. Is this a sequel to Inherent Vice? Is anything NOT a sequel to Inherent Vice? Questions abound.

Worst narrator ever

I couldn’t get more than 5 minutes into this book due to the annoyingly heavy and obnoxious New Jersey accent of the narrator. Why she was chosen I’ll never understand. Waste of money.
