Summary
"The first biography of the renowned American author David Foster Wallace. Wallace was on of the most innovative and influential authors of the last twenty-five years. A writer whose distinctive style and example had a huge impact on the culture and helped give meaning to his generation in a disorienting, distressing time. In this first in-depth biography, journalist D.T. Max captures Wallace's compelling, turbulent life and times--his genius, his struggle to stay sane and happy in a difficult world, his anxiety and loneliness--as well as why he mattered as a writer and a human being"--
Summary
Profiles the life of the influential and tormented literary figure, drawing on conversations with family and friends as well as hundreds of unpublished letters, manuscripts, and audio recordings to offer insight into his authentic writing style and his 2008 suicide
