By David Foster Wallace

Våren 2012 återlanserade Natur & Kultur David Foster Wallaces författarskap för en svensk publik, med debutromanen Systemets sopkvast från 1987 och den postumt utgivna Blek kung. I samband med utgivningen arrangerades ett stort seminarium på Internationell författarscen i Stockholm, där de medverkande - Jan Gradvall, Eva Johansson, Jens Liljestrand, Martina Lowden, Malte Persson och översättaren Alva Dahl - fick i uppdrag att välja var sin textual content de tyckte var särskilt viktig att översätta.
Dessa texter utgör grunden för det urval av DFW:s noveller och essäer som nu utkommer i samlingen Texter. Texterna representerar olika skeden och strömningar i författarskapet. Där finns snillet, ensamheten, lekfullheten, självreflektionen, humorn, specialiseringen, metafysiken och inveckladheten. Där finns de välansade gräsmattorna, de pinsamma ovanorna och de högröda mansansiktena. Den detaljhysteriskt genomborrande sakprosan och den ohyggligt uppfinningsrika fiktionsprosan. Liksom urvalet grodde ur ett samtal talar texterna med varandra, med oss, ambivalent och glasklart.

Carcolo blinked. ” “They walk naked through sleet and storm; do you think they fear hunger? And there is wild lichen to be gathered. How could we forbid this? You might dare some sort of coercion, but not I. ” Ervis Carcolo heaved a deep disgusted sigh. “Joaz Banbeck, I took you for a man of decision. ” “Well then. ” Joaz fingered his chin. “If Coralyne recedes and we are still on Aerlith—rather than in the hold of the Basic ship—then let us plan to plunder the secrets of the sacerdotes. In the meantime I strongly recommend that you prepare Happy Valley against a new raid.

Beside the ship the insanity had quieted; the out-worlders huddled quietly beside the hull. There came a sudden mind-shattering explosion: a blankness of yellow and white fire. The ship disintegrated. A great crater marred the valley floor; fragments of metal began to fall among the attacking Banbeck warriors. Kergan Banbeck stared at the scene of destruction. Slowly, his shoulders sagging, he summoned his people and led them back to their ruined valley. At the rear, marching single-file, tied together with ropes, came the twenty-three grephs, dull-eyed, pliant, already remote from their previous existence.

Look up into the night sky, ponder the bounties which might be ours! You ask how can we implement these desires? ” “You mean—” “Communication with the worlds of men! ” Joaz Banbeck nodded dubiously. ” Carcolo held out his hands in a gesture of open-minded tolerance. “Perhaps you are right. But why should we not make inquiries of the sacerdotes? Concretely I propose as follows: that you and I agree to the mutual cause I have outlined. Next, we request an audience with the Demie Sacerdote. We put our questions.
