QT appears in a David Foster Wallace essay


#1

After knowing novelist David Foster Wallace committed suicide on 12 september, (an author who is not very well known in my country), I’ve tried to find out about him.



I found this, an essay he wrote in 1996 : David Lynch Keeps His Head



here’s an extract :



“It seems to me fair to say that the commercial Hollywood phenomenon that is Mr. Quentin Tarantino would not exist without David Lynch as a touchstone, a set of allusive codes and contexts in the viewers midbrain.”
