David Foster Wallace

(last updated: 2008-07-26.)

David Foster Wallace writes stuff that I enjoy. I'm a little obsessed.

FFACY

I took one of his earlier essays, one that was to my knowledge previously unavailable to anyone without access to a good library, and scanned/typeset it into a nice PDF. You can read it:

Fictional Futures and the Conspicuously Young (LaTeX source).

Interview

A friend scanned an interview with DFW by Dave Eggers. It comes from Issue 8 of The Believer, which dates it in late 2003.

Topics discussed include his writing process, political writing, chewing tobacco, pop-math books, teaching, etc.

Believer Interview.

Best American Essays

DFW wrote the foreword. I re-typeset it.
