Granta Audio: D.T. Max on David Foster Wallace

|

D.T. Max’s Every Love Story is a Ghost Short: A Life of David Foster Wallace charts the prodigious rise, numerous breakdowns and sad end of one of the foremost writers of his generation. Here Wallace’s biographer talks about why ‘David always wanted to be one David’, the solace he found in twelve-step programmes and what his use of wiper-fluid, on a car ride with Jonathan Franzen, reveals about his prose style.

    I suspect you know as well the studies done by Witschi on certain geographic races of frogs, and I assume you accept without discussion the rigour of Mende. http://www.love2drive.co/

    Writing with style and getting good compliments on the article is quite hard, to be honest.But you've done it so calmly and with so cool feeling and you've nailed the job. This article is possessed with style and I am giving good compliment. Best!
