Thomas Pynchon: A Journey into the Mind of [p.]

Synopsis

From Mary Shelley to Margaret Mitchell authors have complained of their public persona being eclipsed by their literary creations. Not so in the case of American author Thomas Pynchon who takes the phrase “maintaining a low profile” to new heights. In the absence of any substantial information about his life, an elaborate mythology has emerged - mostly based on the themes of the writer’s work: paranoia, conspiracy theories and coincidences. Rumors about that he was once a CIA agent, which explains the military dimension to his work. Filmmakers Fosco and Donatello DUBINO are not deterred by this lack of information - indeed, it seems to spur them to greater creativity.
