A chronology of known facts concerning the life and writings of American writer Thomas Pynchon, author of the novels V., THE CRYING OF LOT 49, GRAVITYS RAINBOW, VINELAND, and MASON & DIXON. It covers the years 1937 through 2004, and is presented in lieu of a biography, since very little is known concerning his personal life. Special attention is paid to published works and professional relationships, and to ascertaining exact and consistent dates of publications, awards, events, and appearances. The information in this brief chronology was compiled from pub¬lished sources, including THE NEW YORK TIMES, the WASHINGTON POST, various booksellers catalogs, and other online sources. Dates have been independently verified whenever possible. Gerald Howards recent article, Pynchon From A to V, in BOOKFORUM, Summer 2005, has been extremely informative and helpful. This chronology is intended as a teaching aid or learning object for teachers and students of literature. It is modelled on the chronology style developed by The Library of America under the guidance of the late Hanna M. (Gila) Bercovitch. Contains links to several standard Thomas Pynchon websites. Length is approximately 1,600 words.
