The Thomas Trail: every contact leaves traces

Greenwich Village, NY: Thomas Pynchon at Gerde’s Folk City, 11 W. 4th Street, 1 Block West of Broadway.

Well, I met Tom — I think I met him more in New York at Gerde’s Folk City, that kind of thing, which was a place we initially all went to. I remember Tom as a man who was preternaturally almost — he had the aura of someone who stood in the back of a room and was looking at everything, taking in everything. He was very much a man who was attentive to everything that was going on. And he exuded a kind of almost genius that way, as if he had this enormous talent as an observer. (David Shetzline)
