Pynchon Character Names: A Dictionary by Patrick Hurley



The dictionary lists each character from Pynchon's fiction up through his most recent novel, including the most likely etymology of each name. In addition, the thorough introduction examines Pynchon's character names as a part of his greater literary strategy, establishing a set of categories through which most of the names may be understood.
