Description

"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.
