Literary Fan Compiles Exhaustive David Foster Wallace Audio Archive Online


Late author David Foster Wallace (who most notably brought us the mammoth 1,079-page novel Infinite Jest) is remembered not only via his myriad brilliant writings, but also through a vast collection of audio recordings including interviews and readings.

And now, one fan named Ryan Walsh has taken it upon himself to gather a comprehensive archive of Wallace audio (via TwentyFourBit). The David Foster Wallace Audio Project divides the audio into four categories: Interviews & Profiles, Readings, Eulogies & Remembrances and ‘Brief Interviews’ Staged Readings.

On the Audio Project site, Walsh says, “I will continue to update this collection so that interested parties can always download it all with great ease via one click.” Keep up the good work, Mr. Walsh.
