Revision as of 06:28, 14 July 2007 by MKOHUT (Talk | contribs)

“In America there are no boundaries, only mazes. No one knows how to draw them, though they are indeed drawn, whether randomly or conspiratorially into binary systems of mutual exclusion or permissive inclusion that deflates all differences and distinction. Here no one seems sure of the border between fact and fiction, animate and inanimate, the projected and the perceived.”

-Peter Euben on Thomas Pynchon’s The Crying of Lot 49 (in The Tragedy of Political Theory: The Road Not Taken, Princeton University Press, 1990)
