David Foster Wallace News and Resources Since March 97
I've heard on the grape vine that The Pale King may be delayed until Fall next year. If this is the case I don't see this as a bad thing. The last thing any of us want is a rushed edit of an unfinished novel. I'm sure Michael Pietsch is doing a wonderful job.
A couple of old DFW interviews.
The first is with Lewis Frumkes from 1999. I think this is probably the most uncomfortable DFW interview I've listened to. DFW does a great job fielding a series of rambling and, dare I say, poorly researched questions. His little responses to a number of the questions, before he answers them, are hilarious. (Thanks, Naughty)
The second is from a website by Bryan Garner (of Garner's Modern American Usage which was the subject of DFW's Tense Present). I am informed there are a number of these in the series, anyone seen any of them? (Thanks, Kit) Update: Now also over at Youtube (Thanks, Lefteris)
Let me know if you've found, or would like me to link to, a DFW memorial.

An edited version of my panel segment at the Sydney Writers' Festival was shown on ABC Fora (digital TV channel ABC2 in Australia) earlier this evening. If you are new to DFW then this page is a great place to start.
It will be repeated next Thursday, September 17th, at 5:35pm.
