A Story about American Boredom: David Foster Wallace

In this interview (audio only), David Foster Wallace talks about one of his books:

“I think in a country where we have it as easy as we do, one of our big dread vectors is boredom.”

“I just got interested in the reality of boredom, which is something I think is a hugely important problem and yet none of us talk about it, because we all act likes it something we have to get through… which I suppose we do.”
