FROM THIS EPISODE

The terrible and sad impact of David Foster Wallace's suicide caused us to want to remember him as he first appeared in the KCRW studios, fresh from the publication of his breakthrough novel, Infinite Jest. He was brilliant and charming — and his death is an enormous loss to American literature.

Note: This interview did not air live on KCRW as it was pre-empted by special holiday programming. It will, however be available for podcasting and retained in our archives.

  • Read an excerpt from Infinite Jest.
