Of A Fond Ghoul

(1990) Blown Litter Press, NY. Correspondence between Thomas Pynchon and Corlies M. Smith, who was Pynchon’s editor when he was working on the manuscript of V., 1960-1962. Only 50 numbered copies, 40 pages, and by far the scarcest of Pynchon’s piracies. The letters involve the editing of the manuscript, possible titles, Seattle addresses, etc. A significant piece of Pynchon writing that has never been published before or since.
