There is also a lot of discussion on the wallace-l email list (I've been

a member for years)

Ed wrote about the reading

One of the pieces he read was for Rolling Stone about September 11th.

 

He died on September 12th, 2008

 

The 9-11 piece doesn't seem to be online, but his profile of the 2000 version of John McCain is (an uncut version is available as a short book)

He reads a 20 minute except about 10 minutes in to the Character Assasination episode

of this American Life (which sadly describes the current campaign except McCain has become Bush)

He also talks about politics and McCain in the Believer interview with Dave Eggers

and the end of this intro essay is very political

    Great photo Steve. Thank you for sharing it.

    I've included DFW's address on my page of Pillar Ideas, as I think his address to Kenyon College in 2005 entitled "This is Water" is brilliant and needs to be shared. I linked the photo back to here.

    Thanks again for sharing your photo and placing it in the Commons!
