About this Item: Condition: Near Fine. A small collection relating to critic Bruce Allen's seminal review of Gravity's Rainbow (published in the March 1, 1973 issue of Library Journal), including one Typed Letter Signed from Thomas Pynchon to Allen, responding with candor and appreciation to Allen's praise and commenting at length on Viking and the plight of the independent publisher "in an era of massive conglomeratizing." Pynchon's letter is together with Allen's three outgoing carbons of his letters to Pynchon, along with Allen's heavily annotated uncorrected proof and first edition copies of Gravity's Rainbow, the former of which was used in composing his review. Along with those printed in Kirkus and Publishers Weekly, Allen's is arguably the earliest Gravity's Rainbow review of any consequence, calling it "the most important work of fiction yet produced by any living writer." Allen was among the first to recognize the importance of the novel, and his enthusiasm and admiration helped ignite a deluge of critical interest, the spirit of which is embodied here in his letters and personal copies of the proof and first edition. Allen's first letter to the author, dated January 23, 1973, sends his "congratulations -- and grateful thanks -- on the occasion of the appearance [of the novel]," calling it "a marvelous book" that he looks forward to rereading "more than a time or two." He confesses, "I struggled with it for two months (was nearly six weeks beyond deadline with the review -- the worst I've ever done). Wasn't able to say nearly what I wanted to in the (brief) LJ review -- but, even if I'd had unlimited space, I fear I wouldn't have been able to do the book justice." He continues, "It seems to me that when a writer devotes so much labor, intelligence, and pure skill to the making of a book that is both a moving emotional experience and a complex intellectual synthesis -- well, that we owe it to him to work as hard as we must to try to unlock everything that it contains." Allen's own well-read copies -- the proof, in particular, which in addition to being annotated shows physical wear -- certainly attest to that hard work. He goes on to comment on Viking, writing that he hopes they "will try to do something to make the novel more easily accessible."At the heart of the archive is Pynchon's reply to Allen, which begins by thanking him for "that really extravagant review," noting that "it was a good ego trip for me, and I guess it must've cheered up Viking's advertising people too." He then addresses Allen's reference to Viking and accessibility, referring to the book's price -- "the $15 difficulty" -- and explaining, "if the book sells lousy they'll call it Viking's Folly, and if it sells good it will be a great enlightened Watershed In Publishing History or something, but I don't know if anybody can predict ahead of time what's going to happen with any degree of confidence. [.] I try to stay out of it as much as I can, because nobody at Viking pays any attention to me -- my feeling was that the whole fucking thing ought to be paperback. The idea was to get it to people who can't afford $15. But they had their own ideas."To be fair, Viking is trying to survive as a smaller independent publisher in an era of massive conglomeratizing, and it costs them more to put out a book than the biggies like Random House. But till writers get their own publishing and distributing operation together, this 19th-century dispensation wherein the Man gets to make off with 85-95% of the writer's earnings will go on prevailing, and all the talk is sort of academic. Charles Newman has written a pretty good overview of the situation in the latest Tri-Quarterly, if you're interested. Thanks for caring enough to write to Viking, anyhow. Their ways are too inscrutable for me, but we'll see what happens. "Allen's subsequent correspondence of November 10, 1975, and July 16, 1976, continues to express appreciation for Pynchon's work. He also includes questions about Gravity's Rainbow (gene. Seller Inventory # 397904
