Thomas Pynchon Party Program

pynchonvice.jpgAfter nearly a year of speculation, Thomas Pynchon fans can finally buy “Inherent Vice tomorrow.

Ever since Conversational Reading spotted rumors of Pynchon’s new private detective novel last October, GalleyCat has investigated the book’s development: the handpicked cover art, the first excerpt of the novel, and author Salman Rushdie‘s thoughts about the new book. This afternoon, we published a video essay about the psychedelic mystery.

But we aren’t the only ones excited about the book. Tonight, Book Soup in Los Angeles will stay open past midnight to sell the book, serving home made chocolate covered frozen bananas and banana pancakes to celebrate the release. A Cappella Books in Atlanta, Georgia and St. Mark’s Bookstore in Manhattan will stay open past midnight tonight as well.
