It got the second last question from Sven, and the beginning of the responses. I believe there may have been one more question after it.
(3:10) James Wood - Intro
(6:55) James Wood, "I don't come to him as an expert. I come to him indeed with something like periodic blindness. I reviewed Infinite Jest when it came out in The Guardian, positively, but I did not review Oblivion positively. And over the years I've been educated, I think, my blindnesses have been educated by friends and colleagues. Sven among them, Wyatt Mason would be another who have helped me, I think, to see at times where I have been wrong in, or hasty, in my readings. D. T. Max is absolutely one of those educators and please give him a warm hand of applause."
