D. T. Max Reviews Quack This Way

There's a fine post by D. T. Max about/reviewing Quack This Way over at the New Yorker Page-Turner Blog, D.F.W.’s Favorite Grammarian:

For readers, I think it’s almost entirely a good thing. Our worries are not D.F.W.’s. He was a brilliant conversationalist, whose best stuff often didn’t make it to the page—our Coleridge, if you like. Ask anyone who knew him, and what they remember is his glorious, discursive, impassioned talk.

And it’s true that even in this new, slender volume, there is always something absorbing, something distinctive, some agitated motion of the inner being that is distinctly Wallace.
