GalleyCat’s Pynchon Party Program

pynchonvice.jpgAs the August 4, 2009 release date for Thomas Pynchon‘s new novel nears, GalleyCat will collect news of all the midnight parties to celebrate the release of “Inherent Vice.”

A Cappella Books in Atlanta, Georgia will stay open all night on August 3rd; in addition, St. Mark’s Bookstore in Manhattan will stay open past midnight that evening. If you are an owner, worker, or fan of a bookstore celebrating the Pynchon release at midnight on August 3rd, email GalleyCat. We’ll add your party to the Pynchon Party Program next week alongside our own Pynchon-inspired content.

Here’s more from A Cappella Books: “[Inherent Vice's] contents are a closely-guarded secret. Advance copies are kept to a minimum, and there are unspeakable punishments in store for anybody in possession of one sharing it with someone not authorized. Likewise, for selling a copy before its on-sale date … we’ll be open all night Monday, August 3rd, with still-to-be-determined Pynchon-inspired mayhem.” (Via MobyLives)
