Penguin Press to publish new Thomas Pynchon novel this fall called BLEEDING EDGE.
Washington Post Book World fiction editor Ron Charles broke the news today that novelist Thomas Pynchon will publish a new novel called Bleeding Edge this fall with Penguin Press.
We have reached out to Penguin Press for comment and will update this post as the story evolves. In a recent New York Times interview, director Paul Thomas Anderson revealed his work on an adaptation of Pynchon’s most recent novel, Inherent Vice.
Check it out: “The book is a stoner private-eye saga, and Mr. Anderson has found an invaluable “research bible,” he said, in the underground comic strip the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers. This is the first authorized adaptation of a Pynchon work, which suggests that Mr. Pynchon, famously reclusive, is cooperating in some fashion. But Mr. Anderson, a fan of that author since his teenage years, declined to speak on the record about him and seemed loath even to utter his name.”
