Quack This Way - First Impressions

Bryan A. Garner's (@BryanAGarner) interview with David Foster Wallace, Quack this Way, was waiting for me when I arrived home this afternoon.

I need to savour every moment of this.

I'm finding it difficult to express just how great this is. The majority of this 137 page publication is the transcript of a 96 minute conversation between Garner and Wallace in 2006. The interview is Wallace at his best speaking about his craft and writing in general. Wallace is so comfortable.

It is completely captivating and invigorating.

I'm already taking notes for things to share with my students about writing.

And it's lovely to 'hear' Wallace's voice again. Garner has done a wonderful thing to share not only the interview with us but a beautiful introductory tribute, unflinchingly written about a dear friend. To top it off royalties support the Wallace literary archive at the Harry Ransom Center.

Do not hesitate. Buy this volume. You won't regret it.
