An Index to Thomas Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow

Part Four. The Counterforce

Episode 9 (717-724)

In her pack, Geli Tripping brings along a few of Tchitcherine's toenail clippings, a graying hair, a piece of bedsheet with a trace of his sperm, all tied in a white silk kerchief, next to a bit of Adam and Eve root and a loaf of bread baked from wheat she has rolled naked in and ground against the sun.
