A Supposedly Funny Thing: David Foster Wallace

DFW discusses his delightful non-fiction book — A Supposedly Funny Thing, which is a collection of essays and articles about various topics, places and almost-adventures.  DFW was often commissioned by slick New York magazines to write articles about subjects like cruises, lobster festivals, tennis tournaments, etc.

Note the difference between DFW’s articulation and the interviewer’s articulation.  The interviewer sounds like a pompous, stuffed-shirt, who obviously wishes he was as cool and talented as DFW.
