Pynchon novel confirmed

Rumors have been flying around the web for weeks, but Penguin confirmed last Friday that Thomas Pynchon will indeed be publishing a new novel on or about August 2009.  The reclusive author wrote this novel fairly quickly compared to his last: fans of Gravity’s Rainbow had to wait seventeen years for Vineland, seven for Mason & Dixon, and nine for his latest, Against the Day.

Other rumors about the book, such as it being around 400 pages, a noir detective story set in the 1960s, or having a largely psychedelic background, are confirmed only by Wikipedia.
