David Foster Wallace on Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian: “Don’t even ask.” From his 1999 piece in Salon, “Five direly underappreciated U.S. novels > 1960.”

  1. A note I have (also from Matt Bucher):

    “DFW’s copy of Blood Meridian is the most heavily annotated book I have
    ever seen. There is almost no white space left. The endsheets are
    filled with sequential questions to himself. On the title page he
    wrote MORE OR LESS NO COMMAS, in bright red ink.”
