Take that, you boring old Canon of Literature, you!
Along that line of thinking, C.S. sent me the link to the promotional video for Thomas Pynchon's new book, Inherent Vice. The video is narrated by the man himself, which is rather cool. And it's part of a whole website devoted to All Things Pynchon. Also pretty cool. C.S. is very psyched that there is a new Pynchon in town.
This book is apparently a whole new angle for Pynchon, who is, shall we say, um, not my favorite author. C.S. figured I could use a little extra incentive to watch the promo. And I quote: "You'll even see a cat in the video!"
