Like Mr. Biglione, I have to disagree strongly -- not just with the factual errors. Pynchon is his name. He's arguably more reclusive than J.D. Salinger -- about the only photo of him that exists is from his undergrad days at Cornell.
_Vineland_ is genius. It's literature, not Steven King. His masterwork is _Gravity's Rainbow_.
There are Pynchon sites all over the web. Check 'em out. Then hie thee to a copy of _Gravity's Rainbow_.
