Summary
  • The surrealistic adventures of the young anti-hero reflect the author's irreverent view of life, using a 1950s college campus as a microcosm of the world
  • "Fariña evokes the Sixties as precisely, wittily, and poignantly as F. Scott Fitzgerald captured the Jazz Age. The hero, Gnossus Pappadopoulis, weaves his way through the psychedelic landscape, encountering--among other things--mescaline, women, art, gluttony, falsehood, science, prayer, and, occasionally, truth. A portrait of an explosive decade, sparkling with inventive writing and conveying the essence of a generation, Been Down So Long It Looks Like Up to Me, as Thomas Pynchon writes in the introduction, 'comes on like the Hallelujah Chorus done by 200 kazoo players with perfect pitch.'" -- Publisher's description
