Ever since I read A Wanderer in the Perfect City, Lawrence Weschler has been one of my favorite writers, but his writing can be difficult to find these days as he no longer writes regularly for the New Yorker. It takes some searching to find his work, but he has certainly been industrious and recent work includes books, articles, and a podcast (in addition to the interview that I linked to in the previous post):
Tara Donovan, The Monacelli Press, September, 2008--A book collaborative between Donovan and Weschler.
True to Life: Twenty-Five Years of Conversations with David Hockney, University of California Press, January, 2009--A collection of conversations between Weschler and Hockney.
Seeing is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Sees, University of California Press, February, 2009--This biography of Robert Irwin was, of course, his first book and is being reissued with new material by Weschler, who has continued to cover Irwin for the last three decades.
The Paralyzed Cyclops, The Believer, December, 2008--About the converging and contrasting styles and ideas of art represented by David Hockney and Robert Irwin.
Lawrence Weschler: The P.T. Barnum of the Mind, The Stranger, December, 2008--A podcast interview of Weschler. For literary gossip hounds: he describes then-New Yorker editor Tina Brown's disapproval of the length of his 10,000-word piece on Mr. Wilson's Cabinet of Wonder, which eventually ran in Harper's, and her subsequent diatribe-letter against "Ren."
The Emperor's Deathbed: An Exchange, The Virginia Quarterly Review, Winter, 2008--A written exchange between Weschler and Salman Rushdie on Ryszard Kapuściński.
