A New Old DFW Interview


This 2006 interview with David Foster Wallace has been published for the first time in English.

The conversation was part of a larger collection of pieces that highlighted foreign authors, movie directors and artists who were not well known in Russia. DFW applies his insight to the topics of American consumerism, pop culture and the modern state of American literature (a topic that he initially responds to with, “Ugggggghhhhh.”)
