"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.
