Cloth; Used. As New. Dust Jacket: As New. Mason & Dixon by Thomas Pynchon. First Edition/First Printing. Post-Modern Literature.


"Mason & Dixon, an epic postmodernist novel by Thomas Pynchon first published in 1997, centers on the collaboration of the historical Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon in their astronomical and surveying exploits in Cape Colony, Saint Helena, Great Britain and along the Mason-Dixon line in British North America on the eve of the American Revolutionary War.


Intermingled with Mason and Dixon's biographies, history, fantasy, legend, speculation, and outright fabrication, this novel offers not "the" story of Mason and Dixon, but "a" story of Mason and Dixon through the narrative focal point of one Rev. Wicks Cherrycoke, a clergyman of dubious orthodoxy, who attempts to entertain and divert his extended family on a cold December evening — partly for amusement, and partly to keep his coveted status as a guest in the house."
