I first encountered Gravity's Rainbow at about the same time I began to paint, in mid-1977. At the time, I was just looking for any big book to help keep me awake at my job as a motel night clerk. At random, I selected GR from the local library and read it episodically, between the arrivals of the red-eyed tourists.
