Overview

 

“Beautifully written…” — Jonathan Lethem

“One of the country’s best new writers. ” — Eye Weekly

Chris Eaton’s fictions read like intellectual fisticuffs: bruising but with more than a touch of moustache wax. Playing with notions of ownership and plagiarism, Letters to Thomas Pynchon is a collection of early stories and new works. Beginning with an unmailed letter to Thomas Pynchon, Eaton further riffs on literary history with occasional side trips into obscure — possibly fake — history, lost cinemas, and NASA’s track record.

With a sense of gravity and humor, Letters to Thomas Pynchon proves that originality is sometimes an artist’s toughest sparring partner.

This title is available in electronic formats only, and is part of ECW’s Joyland eBook imprint.
