An Index to Thomas Pynchon's Against the Day

Four. Against the Day

Chapter 52

Section 2 (725-728)

Paul Nightingale reading Section 52.2

Up here in north Italy, as in France one might buy ordinary village wine hoping to find a few cases overrun from a great vineyard nearby, Vibe's theory was to buy all the school-of-Squarciones he could put his hands on in the hopes that someplace in there might be an unattributed Mantegna somebody had overlooked.
