Wanted to hear what DFW had to say about Infinite Jest--almost nothing in here. Too sloppy, too disjointed, too undisciplined--due more to the reporter-author than DFW I think. He was supposed to be doing a profile for Rolling Stone, but in the end they didn't want it. And we see why. The author should have been giving us something we didn't know about DFW and his work--that is, getting DFW to give it to us. Instead we sit in on a lot of inconsequential late-night, roadtrip chat. DFW had a lot more to say--too bad this author didn't get him to say it.
