An Index to Thomas Pynchon's Against the Day

Four. Against the Day

Chapter 51

Section 2 (715-720)

Paul Nightingale reading Section 51.2

On weekday evenings Cyprian, appearing each time measurably fatter, even to the casual surveillant, came lurching out of the same back exit of the Klomser and made his way -his thoughts interrupted only by an occasional high C from Leo Slezak at the Opera House- sometimes by Fiaker, sometimes on the Verbindungsbahn if he sa a train coming, to his old sanctuary of the desire the Prater, though nothing much was than ever observed to take place.
