Since The Publication Of "Under the Rose" And V., Thomas Pynchon Has Been Recognized For His Ability to Use-Secondary Sources to Create A Compelling Sense Of Time And Place. While His Debts To The Guidebooks Of Karl Baedeker In Particular Have Often Been Cited, There Has Been Little Examination Of One Source Central To Pynchon's Last Published Short Story, "The Secret Integration," And To Certain Sections Of Gravity's Rainbow. Examination Of This Source Not Only Illuminates Both Of These Texts But Makes The Correlations Between Them More Apparent.
