Published in 2006, Against the Day is the longest and most ambitious novel by one of our most important writers. Set in a crucial period of modern American history—between the Gilded Age 1890s and the years following World War I—it offers a unique, expansive, and tremendously original picture of the emergence of modern America. Our goal in this seminar is to learn how to read this inventive, challenging, and deeply rewarding book.

Reading List: Against the Day by Thomas Pynchon (2007 Penguin edition)
