Summary

Summary

Thomas Pynchon is one of the most popular authors of modern literature and without doubt, one of its most mysterious representatives. For 30 years Pynchon has been out of public sight, giving no interviews and not allowing any photographs of himself. His whereabouts are unknown and only visible through his publications. This film makes a journey to the places of Pynchon's biography, picks up motives and tracks from his novels and reveals some of his literary universe and world of ideas.


Summary

Elusive literary icon Thomas Pynchon serves as the subject of this biographical documentary tracing the author's enduring career while also exploring some of his most challenging ideas and concepts. Pynchon is not only one of the most popular authors in modern literature, he's also one of the most mysterious. In addition to remaining completely out of the public eye for the last thirty years, Pynchon has neither granted a single interview during that time, nor allowed any photographs to be taken of himself. Yet his legacy lives on stronger than ever, allowing the fans to speculate and the critics to scratch their heads as they attempt to digest the author's rich, intellectually stimulating works. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
