Manhattan Beach Pynchon Pending

New, 3 comments

Is this the work of a rich lit nerd or just standard blocks-from-the-beach covetability? The Manhattan Beach duplex where very private author Thomas Pynchon lived in the late sixties and early seventies went under contract this weekend just four days after hitting the market. The building, which last sold in 1991, was listed last week with an asking price of $1.05 million. Come to think of it, maybe a notoriously mischievous and secretive author is behind the pending sale. [Redfin]
