1993 Interview with David Foster Wallace

Thanks to the folks on the wallace-l and The Howling Fantoids, we've got this great 1993 interview with David Foster Wallace from Whiskey Island Magazine, the literary magazine of Cleveland State University. Nick from the Fantoids got permission to post scans of the article, Gabriel on wallace-l did an OCR and Patrick provided the raw text. The link below is formatted the way I like it and I'm putting it out here for you all.

Looking for a Garde of Which to be Avant: An Interview with David Foster Wallace

Wallace was my favorite writer and I'm still very sad about his death.  Reading this interview, which appeared three years before his landmark novel, Infinite Jest, it just makes me miss him more.
