Thanks for putting all these together Fizz - I especially love the Rose interview.

I find myself occasionally watching the German interview as I would a movie and wonder whether it might be the truest DFW movie we can expect - the pitiless gaze of the camera, the way he shifts from querulousness to bewilderment to irritation to honestly trying to help the interviewer out and back to irritation (with the genuinely irritating cameraman). Perhaps all interviews are like that, and I've only ever seen the edited versions. I'd be very interested to know what the interviewer thinks of it. Less interested, but not uninterested, to know what the cameraman thinks of it.

Hey Fizz, I just wanted to thank you for this. I'm listening to the interview with Chris Lydon (1996) right now. Really good.

here's another interview I can't seem to find an actual source for (one comment says Fresh Air) including DFW reading an excerpt from "The Soul is Not a Smithy": part one, part two

I'm almost done reading The Pale King. The first link (near the end) talks about what an amazing novel it is. I couldn't agree more.
