Variety.com on Dec 13 2006 noted that the plot of Brief Interviews with Hideous Men as "Julianne Nicholson stars as a graduate student coping with a recent breakup by conducting interviews with various men."

Welcome to the new Howling Fantods!
I've spent quite a bit of time setting up the site using the Joomla open source content management system (CMS). Believe it or not, this has been in the works for over a year. I experimented with a number of CMS setups that did not quite let me do what I wanted. I'm so glad it is finally done.
The two Charlie Rose video interviews are now free for all on Google Video. Thanks to Ben for letting wallace-l know, and also for noting where we need to skip to time wise.
1. Roundtable with Jonathan Franzen and Mark Leyner in 1996, tune in at the 35 minute mark.
2. The 'bandana interview' of 1997 where DFW does not seem at all comfortable; a very interesting interview. 23 minute mark.
10 Years Beyond the Infinite , Time magazine on 10 years of IJ (from last November).

Finally, uou really must check out Greg Carlisle's fabulous work in progress: The Connectedness of All Events: A Study of Wallace's Infinite Jest. I can't wait until this is finished.
