David Wallace escreve a Don DeLillo


Eremita

 

 

D.F.W

I have a hard time understanding how Fun fits into the Dedication-Discipline-Respect schema. I know that I had less fun doing IJ than I did doing earlier stuff, even though I know in my tummy that it's better fiction. I think I understand that part of getting older and better as a writer means putting away many of my more childish self-gratifying notions of Fun, etc. But Fun is still the whole point, somehow, no? Fun on both sides of the writer/reader exchange? A kind of pleasure -- more rarified, doubtless, than M&M's or a good wank, but nevertheless pleasure. How do I allow myself to have Fun when writing without sacrificing Respect and Seriousness, i.e. going back to the exhibitionism and show-offery and pointless technical acrobatics? I think one reason why I ask you this (though I know you not at all as a person, of course) is that your own fiction seems to me to marry Fun and Seriousness in a profound way, somehow -- a sense of Play that's somehow even Funner because it's not sophomoric or self-aggrandizing or childish or even childlike. This is not coming across like I want it to; I can't make this clear. Maybe your work is this form of profound marriage only to and for me; maybe it's some weird subjective misprision that has to do with me and not your fiction; maybe you have no thoughts on how you've come to make (apparent) Respect and Dedication seem so fuck-all much (apparent) Fun. If you do have any thoughts -- together with a couple minutes to rub together -- I'd be grateful for them. I'm about as professionally flummoxed as I've ever been. Dave Wallace, aos 33 anos.

 

Com o devido agradecimento à Holanda, que me deu a conhecer o magnífico Letters of Note.
