The Thomas Trail: every contact leaves traces

 

 

 

Location, Surveillance, Detection

In  “Thomas and Evelyn” Harrison Frost says Pynchon first lived at a different location in Manhattan Beach, CA:  “Before moving to the place on 33rd Street, Pynchon had lived in a small bachelor apartment behind her [Evelyn’s] home on The Strand.” 

Evelyn Guy’s beachfront rental duplex. Tom lived on the first floor and Evelyn’s friend B.J. lived on the second floor.  Because this duplex was torn down in 1973, Tom only lived here a short time before moving to Evelyn’s other rental apartment at 217 33rd Street.  However, he did continue to receive his mail at this address.

  1. That signed copy of Lot 49 would be quite a collector’s item!
