David Foster Wallace

The photo was taken at a reading for Booksmith at All Saints Church in 2006


a collection of reactions


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


it mentions this Mark Danner piece


and this EO Wilson letter


and this brief excerpt on voting


Host on Talk Radio from the Atlantic


And his profile of Robert Federer


Good People, a short story


a few interviews (though some will be about the airport).
