Jeff Daniels, David Foster Wallace, & Shilpa Ray Plays Live

Studio 360

No one plays a lovable jerk like Jeff Daniels — but it’s hard to love the jerk that he is in his latest role, as a pedophile in Broadway’s “Blackbird.” Plus, we hear from David Foster Wallace’s biographer D.T. Max about why “Infinite Jest” is still so important, 20 years after it first came out. And the punk-rock songwriter Shilpa Ray draws on her classical Indian music training in a live performance.
