    At the center of The Broom of the System is the betwitching (and also bewildered) heroine, Lenore Stonecipher Beadsman. The year is 1990 and the place is a slightly altered Cleveland, Ohio, which sits on the edge of a suburban wasteland-the Great Ohio Desert. Lenore works as a switchboard attendant at a publishing firm, and in addition to her mind-numbing job, she has a few other problems. Her great-grandmother, a one-time student of Wittgenstein, has disappeared with twenty-five other inmates of the Shaker Heights Nursing Home.

    Darwin8u says: "Evidence I WASTED my College years."
    "Pynchon wannabe falls short."

    Story

    Narration was superb, the story a neurotic piece of trash. A bad Woody Allen film in novel form. Save your credits for the real Thomas Pynchon!
