The Chumps of Choice

A Congenial Spot for the Discussion of Against the Day, by Thomas Ruggles Pynchon, Cornell '59, and Any Other Damned Thing That Comes Into Our Heads. Warning: Grad Students and Willie-Wavers will be mocked.

Additional Discussion, pp. 525-556



I close my eyes to still my gaze
And ponder strange Creation's ways
To think that I should end my days
Inside a vat of mayonnaise!

-- Rainer Marie Rilke, "Hold the Pickles, Hold the Lettuce," from the Duino Elegies
