Overview

"Beautifully written?" ? Jonathan Lethem
?One of the countryÓ³ best new writers.Ô  ?Eye WeeklyChris EatonÓ³ 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 NASAÓ³ track record. With a sense of gravity and humor, Letters to Thomas Pynchon proves that originality is sometimes an artistÓ³ toughest sparring partner.
