Chapter 69: California Dreamin!

Now that the War has destroyed the Old Order, Pynhcon is starting to show us the modern that survives. Not surprisingly, we are back in California, his old haunting grounds, locale of Vineland and The Crying of Lot 49.

Lew makes a great Mulholland Drive detective, and we finally learn where Mrs. Deuce Kindred’s life has led. Deuce’s justice comes with his arrest as a mass murderer. No happy endings here.

Merle manages to reunite with Dally by means of modern technology—a distant father-daughter reunion there. Even Lew makes an effort to find the long-lost Troth!
