David Foster Wallace News and Resources Since March 97
Chuffed to see an update over at Poor Yorick Entertainment.
Chris Ayers is calling for requests for his visual blog of James O. Incandenza's filmography.
Post your suggestions to the Poor Yorick Entertainment Facebook page.
Update: And there's a fan art section too.
Through twitter last month I discovered that Bryan A. Garner (@BryanAGarner author of Garner's Modern American Usage and the subject of Wallace's review, Tense Present: Democracy, English, and the wars over usage - the expanded version, Authority and American Usage, was collected in Consider the Lobster) is working on a David Foster Wallace book, due this summer. On the 27th of March Garner announced a competition to draw a caricature for the book cover of his DFW interview, which was won by Landon Montgomery. Here is the entry submitted via twitter.
I received confirmation from Bryan A. Garner via twitter today that his book is based on his 'Prior To' interview with David Foster Wallace. I can't wait to read the rest of the conversation! Here's a taste:
Listen to a 2001 interview on 90.9 wbur's The Connection where Bryan Garner and David Foster Wallace discuss language, Garner's Modern American Usage and Wallace's review of it in Harper's, Tense Present: Democracy, English, and the wars over usage.
Look what arrived today!
I can't wait to get stuck into this over the weekend.
