An anonymous tipster said: “Rumor has also placed [Tom] in Sayulita, Mexico…. I’m beginning to suspect he is everywhere among us, or of us, or in us.”

The Thomas Trail: every contact leaves traces

 

 

 

Hotel Isabel

Richard L. of Santa Cruz, CA told me when he was traveling in Mexico he was told Pynchon once stayed at Hotel Isabel, where Richard was staying at the time. Coincidentally, John Ross, Tom’s friend from Humboldt County days, lived for many years at the Hotel Isabel.

Ever wonder why they call it Zacatecas, Zacatecas? Or why it’s Guanajuato, Guanajuato?

Thomas Pynchon’s hotel

(March 9, 1963)  Hotel Central (Rm. 32) Ave. Juares 111, Guanajuato, GTO, Mexico

In 1963, when Time magazine sent a photographer to Mexico City to find Pynchon, legend has it that he jumped out the window of his apartment and fled into the mountains [Guanajuato] to escape.
