Pynchon's Private Eye Novel
What happens when a unique literary giant (and one of my all time favorite writers) puts out a private eye novel? Does he dumb down his work or produce a lite version of himself? Not when he's Thomas Pynchon he doesn't. I recently read his most recent novel, 2009's INHERENT VICE, and I liked it so much I felt compelled to write a little piece about it. You can read it in the current "issue" of the Thrilling Detective website where I have the gall to defend Pynchon's 60's era PI opus.
