I've been foaming at the mouth for the new Pynchon novel; or, at least, I was, until I read the opening paragraph of today's NYT review:

Thomas Pynchon’s new novel, “Against the Day,” reads like the sort of imitation of a Thomas Pynchon novel that a dogged but ungainly fan of this author’s might have written on quaaludes. It is a humongous, bloated jigsaw puzzle of a story, pretentious without being provocative, elliptical without being illuminating, complicated without being rewardingly complex.

Oh well. Maybe I don't need to run out and get it first thing tomorrow morning.

...aw, fuck it.
