David Foster Wallace – Short Reads?

February 19, 2016


David Foster Wallace

Sunday (February 21) marks the birthday of David Foster Wallace, one of the most important American writers of the last quarter-century.

Although Wallace’s masterpieces are his novels, including Infinite Jest (1104 pages), these mammoth works can be intimidating for new readers, so we offer here a selection of his shorter works, for readers who want to immerse themselves slowly in Wallace’s work.

Also, for our readers who are fans of DFW’s work, there is an important new book that will be released next week:
