David Foster Wallace News and Resources Since March 97
I expect we'll see a few reviews of the BIWHM movie over the next few days while it screens at Sundance. Here's the first one I've read with a little more detail than the previews and interviews I've been linking to recently.
Krasinski does Wallace proud: The Salt Lake Tribune +ve (A-)
Keep checking back for more reviews as they appear over the next few days.
A few interesting articles about the BIWHM movie:
indieWIRE interview with John Krasinski.
Jacket Copy Booknews from the LA Times blog.
Boston.com extended article.
EDIT: A couple more for you...
The Envelope LA Times.
The envelope over at the LA Times has a great little articla anf the first clip I have seen of the BIWHM movie. It makes me want to see the film even more. Watch it here. Let me know if you manage to see it when it opens at Sundance this week.
On another note. Thanks to readers who let me know the RSS feed was malfunctioning. I have been running a second (hidden) version of the site for a few weeks now and have corrected the issue. Hopefully it will go live in the next fortnight.
Just a quick reminder that the IJIM Infinite Jest group read is currently in swing over at the wallace-l mailing list and that I'm still discovering new things after having read the novel more times than it is safe to count.
If you are trying to find something new to read I highly recommend 2666 by Roberto Bolaño. In fact, it is a great time to start reading this novel as the 2666 group read starts on the bolano-l mailing list on Jan 12.
Everything you need to know can be found over at Matt Bucher's wonderful blog http://www.bolanobolano.com/. Matt also maintains wallace-l and bolano-l, so you know this will be a well organised group read.
A word of warning: some of the 2666 reviews linked to have massive spoilers in them. Take my word for it (and other DFW fans who are involved in the read) just grab it and read.
