Letters to Thomas Pynchon and Other Stories
"Beautifully written" Jonathan Lethem One of the countrys best new writers. Eye Weekly Chris Eatons 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 NASAs track record. With a sense of gravity and humor, Letters to Thomas Pynchon proves that originality is sometimes an artists toughest sparring partner.
