    John Foster Wallace

    I've not read his books as I don't read fiction. I've always been curious about his famous work "Infinite Jest."

    I've read the synopsis and plot. Has anyone read it.

    Wallace committed suicide about 9 years ago.


    This is a very interesting interview: he talks about teaching and how teacher learn a lot in the first 2 years and then the learning curve dies and teachers are bored and to through the motions. (Wallace taugh Lit and Creative Writing at Uni level).

    He talks about the movie "Blue Velvet" and it's influence on him.

    He talks about other films, also.

    This is worth the watch!

    As of March 15, 2016, I have 97Century Threads.

    ^ Cheers.

    I got his first name wrong.

    It's David (Foster Wallace).

    Too bad he committed suicide.
