| Character Information
Thomas Pynchon is an author.
After Thomas Pynchon read Marge's book The Harpooned Heart, he gave a sarcastic review stating that he loved it almost as much as he loves cameras. He then placed a paper bag on his head, put a sandwich board on his torso, and started inviting people in the street to have photos taken with him, even throwing in a free autograph. (In real life, Pynchon has avoided publicity since early adulthood and there are only a handful of photos of him, all dating back to before 1965.)
