Quietly, steadily, Trump and his administration are damaging the tenets and accepted practices of American democracy, perhaps irrevocably.

    Only once did David Foster Wallace give a public talk on his views on life, during a commencement address given in 2005 at Kenyon College. This is the audio recording of David Foster Wallace delivering that very address. How does one keep from going through their comfortable, prosperous adult life unconsciously? How do we get ourselves out of the foreground of our thoughts and achieve compassion? The speech captures Wallace's electric intellect as well as his grace in attention to others.

    Noch bevor ihn der Roman "Unendlicher Spaß" weltweit berühmt machte, war David Foster Wallace bekannt für seine so subjektiven wie literarischen Essays und Reportagen. Er ging dorthin, wo es (ihm) wehtat: an die Wurzeln der eigenen Depression, auf eine Pornomesse, mit dem Hummer in den Kochtopf und an den Kern des Menschseins. "Die wahre Traurigkeit der Erwachsenen" versammelt die vier großen Texte von Foster Wallace "Der Planet Trillaphon im Verhältnis zur Üblen Sache", "Der große rote Sohn", "Am Beispiel des Hummers" und "This is Water/Das hier ist Wasser" in einem Hörbuch.
