What It Was Like to Edit David Foster Wallace

Back in the mid to late nineties, David Foster Wallace wrote three separate pieces — one on David Lynch, one on Terminator 2, and one on the Adult Video News Awards — for Premiere that have since come to be regarded as some of the finest pop-culture writing of that decade. In this fascinating interview, Jeremiah Kipp speaks with former Premiere editor Glenn Kenny about what it was like to edit DFW's 25,000-word pieces to magazine length, as well as about the friendship the two struck up over the course of their working relationship.
