What does/did Pynchon do for a living? I know his family had -some- money, he went to a nice school and all, and I know he worked for Boeing in his twenties, but I also know that he didn't make enough money off of his books to support himself for all these years.

After CoL49 his agent Candida(before he left her and signed with his wife, who actually worked for Candida) got him a million dollar advance when he signed with Viking.

He got $150,000 advance just for Slow Learner.

He also was a recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship in 1988 which was $500,000 at the time.
