Lover of the Fancy

Early C20th American culture and dissent

The Last Interview & Other Conversations
David Foster Wallace


In intimate and eloquent interviews, including the last he gave before his suicide, the writer hailed by A.O. Scott of The New York Times as “the best mind of his generation” considers the state of modern America, entertainment and discipline, adulthood, literature, and his own inimitable writing style. The volume includes among others interviews with Laura Miller, Dave Eggers, and the student magazine of Wallace’s own alma mater, Amherst.
