David Foster Wallace was one of the greatest writers of his generation, and his recent suicide left the literary world, his family, friends, and fans deeply saddened. His generous spirit is reflected in David Lipsky’s moving portrait, a book he wrote after spending a week on the road with Wallace on his Infinite Jest book tour. It’s a truly unusual portrait—a biography in five days.
