This is Water Original Audio and Video

Hatchette Book Group are advertising that the original David Foster Wallace recording (and video it seems...) of This is Water will be available to purchase from the 1st of May. If this is the commencement speech video (no word yet if it is) this is pretty exciting news!

Update: Thanks go to artistic snorkel for this YouTube link to a clip of the original commencement speech audio!

Well, it's March 1st and that link is just as vague and confusing as it was yesterday. Anyone have any luck figuring out what this is - ebook, pdf, audio recording?

Meanwhile, we'll be adding some new MP3s to the David Foster Wallace Audio Project very soon.

Lastly, have you mentioned that there's a "This Is Water" audiobook already out ready by his sister Amy?
