03.07: The Crying of Lot 49
In which we wrap up chapter five of The Crying of Lot 49.
After a night spent wandering the streets of San Narciso and seeing the post-horn at nearly every turn, Oedipa encounters an old sailor who asks her to drop a letter into W.A.S.T.E. for him. She tails a deliveryman for a while, and then heads back to Kinneret…where things are certainly in a much different state than when she left.
