Exploring puzzling coincidences that she uncovers while parsing Inverarity's testament, Oedipa finds what might be evidence for the Trystero's existence.

Sinking or ascending ever more deeply into paranoia, she finds herself torn between believing in the Trystero and believing that it is a hoax established by Inverarity.

The Crying of Lot 49

Near the novel's conclusion, she reflects: He might have written the testament only to harass a one-time mistress, so cynically sure of being wiped out he could throw away all hope of anything more. Bitterness could have run that deep in him. She just didn't know. He might himself have discovered The Tristero, and encrypted that in the will, downloading into just enough to be sure she'd find it. Or he might even have tried to survive death, as a paranoia; as a pure conspiracy against someone he loved.

Along the way, Oedipa meets a wide range of eccentric characters. Her therapist in Kinneret, Dr. Hilarius, turns out to have done his internship in Buchenwald , working to induce insanity in captive Jews. In San Francisco , she meets a man who claims membership in the Inamorati Anonymous IA , a group founded to help people avoid falling in love, "the worst addiction of all".

In Berkeley , she meets John Nefastis, an engineer who believes he has built a working version of Maxwell's demon , a means for defeating entropy.

The book ends with Oedipa's attending an auction, waiting for bidding to begin on a set of rare postage stamps that she believes representatives of Trystero are trying to acquire. Auction items are called "lots"; a lot is "cried" when the auctioneer is taking bids on it; the stamps are "Lot 49". Characters[ edit ] Oedipa Maas — The protagonist.

After her ex-boyfriend, Pierce Inverarity, dies and she becomes co- executor of his estate, she discovers and begins to unravel what may or may not be a world conspiracy. He has been assigned to help Oedipa execute Pierce's estate. He and Oedipa have an affair. He goes crazy and admits to being a former Nazi doctor at Buchenwald concentration camp , where he worked in a program on experimentally induced insanity.

Oedipa meets him when she wanders into his office while touring the plant. John Nefastis — A scientist obsessed with perpetual motion. He has tried to invent a type of Maxwell's demon to create a perpetual motion machine.

Oedipa visits him to see the machine after learning about him from Stanley Koteks.

Randolph Driblette — A leading Wharfinger scholar and the director of The Courier's Tragedy, he commits suicide before Oedipa can get information from him, but meeting him spurs her to go on a quest to find the meaning behind Trystero. He tells them about The Peter Pinguid Society.

The catalyst of Oedipa's adventure is a set of stamps that may have been used by a secret underground postal delivery service, the Trystero or Tristero. According to the narrative that Oedipa pieces together during her travels around Southern California , the Trystero was defeated by Thurn und Taxis —a real postal system—in the 18th century, but Trystero went underground and continued to exist into the present the s.

Its mailboxes are disguised as regular waste bins, often displaying its slogan, W. The existence and plans of this shadowy organization are revealed bit by bit, but there is always the possibility that the Trystero does not exist. Oedipa is buffeted between believing and not believing in it, without finding proof either way. The Trystero may be a conspiracy, it may be a practical joke, or it may simply be that Oedipa is hallucinating the arcane references to this underground network that she seems to be discovering on bus windows, toilet walls, and everywhere in the Bay Area.

The Trystero muted post horn Prominent among these references is the Trystero symbol, a muted post horn with one loop. Originally derived, supposedly, from the Thurn and Taxis coat of arms , Oedipa first finds this symbol in a bar bathroom, where it decorates a graffito advertising a group of polyamorists.

It later appears among an engineer's doodles, as part of a children's sidewalk jump rope game, amidst Chinese ideograms in a shop window, and in many other places. The post horn in either original or Trystero versions appears on the cover art of many TCL49 editions and in artwork created by the novel's fans.

Oedipa finds herself drawn into the intrigue when an old boyfriend, the California real estate mogul Pierce Inverarity, dies.

On the other hand, the quantum theory of gravity has opened up a new possibility, in which there would be no boundary to space-time and so there would be no need to specify the behavior at the boundary.
