About Community

The biggest community of Pynchon fans discussing literature on the internet; r/ThomasPynchon is a sub for all things related to America's pre-eminent postmodern author, Thomas Pynchon, (and a few things that aren't related at all). It's a virtual home for weirdos and others; a gathering place to keep cool, but care. OH, and Black Lives Matter.
