Like any contemporary novelist, I am a manufactured construct:

‘After Mr. Moore passed along a request for an interview, the author, using a Google email address created for his literary alter ego, responded to questions. He was coy when asked whether he was Thomas Pynchon, and called the question “irrelevant.”

“Like any contemporary novelist, I am a manufactured construct,” he wrote.

It’s not entirely surprising that Mr. Pynchon’s name would come up in connection with a wild bit of literary performance art. Conspiracy theories, elaborate cover-ups and paranoia are recurring threads in his work, from his acclaimed early novels, like “The Crying of Lot 49,” to more recent, pulpier books, like “Inherent Vice” and “Bleeding Edge.” For decades, he has shunned the spotlight, dodging photographers and rarely granting interviews.’
