An Index to Thomas Pynchon's Against the Day

Four. Against the Day

Chapter 60

Section 1 (864-869)

Paul Nightingale reading Section 60.1

Cyprian came churning back at last in to a winter mirage of Venice, no sleep to speak of for weeks, bedraggled, squinting at the tarnished city through the rain on the Lagoon, shivering in the wind's raking assault, eyes scratchy, hair all jagged and drastically in need of attention from Signor Fabrizio-he longed for some time in a staming tub with a cold bottle of anything alcoholic with bubbles.
