An Index to Thomas Pynchon's Against the Day

Four. Against the Day

Chapter 55

Section 10 (785-786)

Paul Nightingale reading Section 55.10

Kit had almost gotten used to riding Kirghiz horses, or more often their shaggier pony-size cousins, his feet all but dragging along the ground, when one day he and Prance came across a band of reindeer herders, moving the herd to new pasture, and he immediately caught sight of one reindeer, pure white, who seemed to be looking back at him pretty intently, before disengaging himself from the herd and trotting over.
