An Index to Thomas Pynchon's Against the Day

Four. Against the Day

Chapter 61

Section 3 (896-899)

Paul Nightingale reading Section 61.3

Meantime 'Pert, who had been busy trying, with little success, to plant doubts about the girl in Hunter's mind, had also learned through elements of the T.W.I.T. something of his earlier adventures and the frailties resulting, and appointed herself a sort of anti-muse, hoping out of meanness to provoke Hunter at least into work unlikely to endear him to the British public.
