An Index to Thomas Pynchon's Against the Day

Four. Against the Day

Chapter 68

Section 7 (1032-1033)

Paul Nightingale reading Section 68.7

While crossing the Continent the boys had expressed wonder at how much more infected with light the night-time terrains passing below had become-more than anyone could ever remember, as isolated lanterns and skeins of gas-light had given way to electric street-lighting, as if advanced parties of the working-day were progressively invading and settling the unarmed hinterlands of night.
