Thomas Pynchon's first novel about New York since 1963's V transports us back to 2001 when the internet was still in its infancy and the World Trade Center had yet to fall. Inhabiting this strange in-between time is small-time fraud investigator Maxine Tarnow who rapidly finds herself over her head as she searches into the machinations of a giant computer-security firm. The discovery lands her into very Pynchonesque predicaments that are often simultaneously dangerous and bizarre. Bleeding Edge displays a master satirist of our time and our social history at his riotous best. Editor's recommendation.
