David Foster Wallace Audio Archive Now Up

A kindly dude by the name of Ryan Walsh has launched a site called The David Foster Wallace Archive. The site collects in one place the loose mp3s that’ve been floating around the web, and includes the Brief Interviews with Hideous Men audiobook in its entirety. There are also interviews, profiles, eulogies, and more. A good starting place: an (as-yet) unpublished piece about a do-gooding boy detested by all. It’s hilarious.

So. It’s kinda sorta Book Covers Week at Biblioklept, and, in keeping with that theme, check out this new cover for Wallace’s debut novel, The Broom of the System. The edition is part of the forthcoming Penguin Ink series and should be available this summer. Art by Duke Riley. We love it.

  1. This audio site is wonderful. Yr relentless DFW coverage is much appreciated, I love hearing his voice but it tends me make me very sad at the same time.

    1. I agree…it is both sad and great to hear his voice. What’s really sad about the audio site is that it probably wouldn’t exist if he was still alive; that, in his early death, he’s left behind a manageable body of work.
