How much I liked The Sot-Weed Factor and how much I admired it are two completely different questions.

The Last Interview and Other Conversations by David Foster Wallace
Rate this book
Clear rating
A slender volume of interviews, at least one of which I'd definitely read before. Almost a classic example of a "completists only" book. It wasn't that I didn't enjoy the interviews, I did, and I got some book recommendations out of them, but that's ...more

As with the other Chatwin travelogues, the "truthfulness" of his journey is moot. Rather, Chatwin is more concerned with writing about the subjective experience of his trip to Australia. Most of the time this is revelatory, although I must admit I fi ...more
