An Index to Thomas Pynchon's Against the Day

Four. Against the Day

Chapter 56

Section 4 (797-799)

Paul Nightingale reading Section 56.4

Dally Rideout, still moping around about Kit, not that she expected any word from him, had gone on maturing into an even more desirable young package, negotiable on the Venetian market as a Circassian slave in old Araby, pale redhead's coloring, bruisable skin inviting violent attention, hair gone beyond the untamed spill she had hit town with, now a blasing announcement of desire about which no one was ready to be convinced otherwise.
