Thought this deserved its own thread since it's been released despite its official release on April 15, which is Tax Day in the US of A.
I haven't started reading it yet but I've flipped through randomly as well as skimmed the preface and first two sections. It's exciting to have 560 pages of new DFW in my hands, and I plan to postpone reading it until my schedule is less busy in a few weeks.
First impressions are positive. The cover and jacket were nicely designed by his widow, Karen Green. I noticed two of the previously published excerpts. Some of the chapters are very short, only a page or two, but fortunately there are several longer DFW-esque passages. I assume the majority of the order was determined by Michael Pietsch.
And, curiously, there was a section that resembled the style of the "Brief Interviews" with their long monologues separated by "Q." Seems DFW really worked on this book for a while.
Anyone else reading this yet?
