John Prine died on April 7, 2020. I was fortunate enough to see him perform several times. I saw him at the Philadelphia Folk Festival in the early 1970s and remember that he sang “Please Don’t Bury Me” and “The Accident” before they were released on Sweet Revenge in 1973. I saw him at the Academy of Music around 1976 with Steve Goodman. They both performed solo with acoustic guitars and did the encore together. The last time I saw him was at Pier Six in Baltimore in 2011.

Thomas Pynchon has been notoriously opposed to being photographed. For his second book, The Crying of Lot 49, the dust jacket of the first printing has a black space where the author’s picture should be. See the second picture in this listing for a copy of the book.
I have a copy of a later printing. There are now reviews where the black space was.
