    inherent vice
    gordita CALIFORNIA

    thomas PYNCHON’S stoner noir inherent vice follows hazy gumshoe doc sportello as he tries to unravel a case involving real estate moguls, arpanet, shady dentists, a secret organization called golden fang, an undead saxophonist, and wyatt earp’s personal mustache cup…


    the story takes place in southern california at the end of “the psychedelic sixties, this little parenthesis of light” and the beginning of the greed, fear, and paranoia of the 70s as manson goes on trial and nixon digs in at the white house. instead of philip marlowe’s whiskey and brandy, sportello’s preference for psychedelic drugs creates enough gaps in his memory and problematic blackouts to spin the case out of control. they also fuel his rants and conspiracy theories including thoughts on donald duck’s whisker stubble and suing mgm over the wizard of oz’s ‘hypercolor.’ along the way he frequents a massage parlor that offers something called the pussy-eater’s special for $14.95, listens to plenty of surf-rock and of course eats a pizza topped with marshmallow, boysenberry yogurt, pork rinds and papaya. book is also full of unforgettable characters and character names such as dr. buddy tubeside, sledge poteet, leonard jermaine loosemeat, trillium fortnight, japonica fenway and bigfoot bjornsen.
