Professors, Get a FREE Copy of the Greatly Anticipated Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip with David Foster Wallace
This indelible portrait of David Foster Wallace, by turns funny and inspiring, is based on a five-day trip with award-winning writer David Lipsky during Wallace’s Infinite Jest tour. A biography in five days, Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself is David Foster Wallace as few experienced this great American writer. Told in his own words, here is Wallace’s own story, and his astonishing, humane, alert way of looking at the world; here are stories of being a young writer—of being young generally—trying to knit together your ideas of who you should be and who other people expect you to be, and of being young in March of 1996. And of what it was like to be with and—as he tells it—what it was like to become David Foster Wallace.
“Highly recommended. A glimpse into the mind of one of the great literary masters of the end of the 20th century…What shines through even more is his deep passion for writing and ideas and his kind, gentle nature…Many fans of Wallace’s writing come to think of him as a friend—by the time they have finished Lipsky’s moving book, they will undoubtedly feel that even more strongly.” — Library Journal
