Correct post-election reading

I recommend reading or re-reading V by Thomas Pynchon.  I read it in 1975 when I was 15, after checking it out of the Fitchburg Public Library.   I am re-reading it now, with an extra 41 years of perspective including 30 years spent in New York where much of the novel is set.  So a lot of details are “lived” for me now that weren’t in the first reading.  It provides some perspective for this election, mostly in the time dimension.
