David Foster Wallace

Fans of the late writer David Foster Wallace, take note: today the University of Texas - which recently acquired his archive containing manuscript materials for his novels, as well as essays, jottings and journalism - will webcast a series of readings from the collection.

The session is called Consider the Archive: An Evening of David Foster Wallace. It's also worth taking a look at the "annotations" the author and essayist made in his copies of books by Cormac McCarthy, John Updike and Don DeLillo.
