It is the 81st birthday today of Thomas Pynchon, perhaps one of the most influential and brilliant writers of modern times. Now we can say that it was a great luck that his literature fame had never been spoiled by any attempts of the Swedesh Academy to consider him for the corrupt Nobel prize for literature. Instead, he should be immediately be nominated for the alternative literature award of the universe. #ThomasPynchon #alternativeNobelPrizeForLiterature #Pynchon
