A Pynchon Snippet

I'm still working my way through Thomas Pynchon's Against The Day. I can't say that my opinion has changed all that much but he does have a nice way of putting things from time to time. Here's an example that I ran across in today's reading. He's talking about an eventful but confusing day for one of his characters.

"...but none of it hung together, the details were like cards tossed on the table of the day that upon inspection could not be arranged into a playable hand."

I like that. I like it a lot.
