A frend of mind sent me this link, a post about what kind of teacher DFW was. He sounds like he was a very good one, tough but fair, and cool.
Interesting note: on rate my prof it was noted that he liked to chew tobacco and spit into a cup during class.
PS: I’m approaching page 100 of Infinite Jest. Woo hoo! Only some 900 pages to go. I’m on fire, baby!
