Oedipa was going crazy, right?
>>12388325where are we going?we’re all going mad.i thought we were going to kew gardens...
She was finally seeing the truth.Your mailman is a pedo.
I don't think she was. I think everyone else was.Usually, that's a clue that we're dealing with an unreliable narrator, but not here.
Somebody post Not Bill Murray’s explanation of crying of lot 49, Not Bill Murray did an explanation here at one point.
>>12388384Not Bill Murray is obviously Pynchon, because nobody could give enough of a shit about The Farting of Lit 49 to pick up on that gay Badger reference

https://warosu.org/lit/thread/S10313252#p10313252Someone made the following comments:>Maas, the surname, is derived from Thomas. The Biblical Thomas did what again?>Maas is also the name of a river. A river that traces the boundary of the Holy Roman Empire. Gee whiz, Mr Misprint had an empire...
