David Foster Wallace News and Resources Since March 97
The Conference Schedule for the Footnotes: New Directions in David Foster Wallace Studies is up, and it looks amazing.
The Footnotes: New Directions in David Foster Wallace Studies conference organisers have opened registrations for the conference on Nov 20th:
Although the conference is free and open to the public, space is limited, so we are asking that people planning to attend register ahead of time. To do so, please send an email with your name and institutional affiliation (if any) to: footnotesregister AT gmail DOT com , and you will be added to the list. Thank you.
Hope to see some of you there!
UPDATE: Thanks to the editors over at The Lifted Brow I can confirm that the excerpt is previously unpublished, about 2000 words, and currently untitled...
The Lifted Brow #6, an Australian publication (Yay!) will feature an excerpt from The Pale King. No idea if it is something we have already seen (Good People, The Compliance Branch, Wiggle Room, or Irrelevant Bob - pg 2), or something new, but I've asked them and hopefully we'll find out soon. (Thanks for spotting this, Matt)
Also, I have word that the Fall 2010 release of The Pale King is not technically a delay seeing as we didn't have a firm release date prior to this.
Thanks for being patient everyone. Have any readers seen the Brief Interviews movie yet? Alas, I'm not sure it will ever show in Australia - I'll have to wait for DVD I expect.
There is a big spread in the reviews, some DFW fans I've spoken to have said it was great. Maybe it helps to be familiar with the source material?
I've collected many reviews and interviews below if you're keen to read more about the film.
