This Is Not DFW's Copy of Ulysses!

Wow. I can feel a rant coming on.

I didn't post about this at the time because it's just not true. But... now the image is just out of control on twitter and other places on the web.


This is NOT David Foster Wallace’s Annotated Copy of Ulysses!

This image first appeared linked to Wallace earlier this year (May-ish) and spread like wildfire. Biblioklept was one of the first places to show it wasn't! Have a read of Biblioklept's, (This Is Not) David Foster Wallace’s Annotated Copy of Ulysses, where there's a full rundown.

The image (taken by Enoc Perez) is actually Lee Server’s Baby I Don’t Care, a biography of Robert Mitchum, and its annotations belong to Tony Shafrazi.

The Daily Dot then posted more about it, Sorry, Internet, but this is not David Foster Wallace's annotated 'Ulysses'.


Interesting how misinformation can spread so quickly when people want to believe it!
