Overview

The acclaimed New York Times–bestselling biography and "emotionally detailed portrait of the artist as a young man" (Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times)

Since his untimely death by suicide at the age of forty-six in 2008, David Foster Wallace has become more than the representative writer of his literary generation—he has become a symbol of sincerity and honesty in an inauthentic age, a figure whose reputation and reach grow by the day. In this compulsively readable biography, D. T. Max charts Wallace's tormented, anguished, and often triumphant battle to succeed as a novelist as he fights off depression and addiction to emerge with his masterpiece, Infinite Jest. Written with the cooperation of Wallace family members and friends and with access to hundreds of Wallace's unpublished letters, manuscripts, and journals, this revelatory biography illuminates the unique connections between Wallace's life and his fiction in a gripping and deeply moving narrative that will transfix readers.
