Pynchon reminds me a lot of Rabelais in his wide-ranging knowledge, skepticism of authority temporal and spiritual, and verbal pyrotechnics. Rabelais is also a lot of fun to read. Full of giants, bawdy monks, and lists, lists, lists. Rabelais is not strong on plots or characterization, but fun to read. The volume I read was translated in 1960 and I'm curious if Pynchon could have read the same translation ... if not the original French.
Another comparison to Pynchon -- besides being a Time Lord -- is to the Coen Brothers The plot of Inherent Vice sounds very similar to The Big Lebowski -- convoluted plot, crazy characters, and abundant use of mind-altering substances.
