Pynchon Goes Public?

Not quite.

But he's doing more publicity for Inherent Vice than any of his other works.

From Entertainment Weekly :

"Tracy Locke of The Penguin Press confirms that the reclusive author narrates the trailer for his new book....Although the text of the trailer’s voiceover is not from Inherent Vice, Locke says that Pynchon composed it himself."

And then there was this quote from the Wall Street Journal that either stirred the ire of -- or inspired awe from -- the lit-crowd:

"The Creative Artists Agency in Los Angeles is handling film rights."

What do you think? Would you like to see lighting-up as Doc Sportello on the big screen?
