Why does this read so much like Pynchon? Did he ever cite Kesey as an influence?
>>20794454Both written by the same group at Langley.
>>20794454It doesn't read much like Pynchon. They have a few things in common. They share some ideological roots (i.e. infantile civilization-wrecking '60s counterculture). Kesey often weaves popular song lyrics into the narrative in In SAGN, if I recall correctly. That might recall Pynchon, but Pynchon's "popular song" lyrics are generally written by Pynchon.
>>20794527Tell me more about this. I got the feeling there might be multiple authors while reading GR.
