    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.

    Long renowned as one of the smartest writers on the loose, David Foster Wallace reveals himself in Consider the Lobster to be also one of the funniest. In this program, he ranges far and farther in his search for the original, the curious, or the merely mystifying. He discovers the World's Largest Lobster Cooker at the Maine Lobster Festival and confronts the inevitable question just beyond the butter-or-cocktail-sauce quandary.

    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.
