Here are a few new book releases this week that are worth checking out:
Our most anticipated new release this week is D.T. Max‘s new biography of David Foster Wallace, Every Love Story is a Ghost Story. The publisher has described this volume: “Since his untimely death by suicide at the age of forty-six in 2008, Wallace has become more than the quintessential writer for his time—he has become a symbol of sincerity and honesty in an inauthentic age. In the end, as Max shows us, what is most interesting about Wallace is not just what he wrote but how he taught us all to live. Written with the cooperation of Wallace’s family and friends and with access to hundreds of his unpublished letters, manuscripts, and audio tapes, this portrait of an extraordinarily gifted writer is as fresh as news, as intimate as a love note, as painful as a goodbye.”
Watch for our review in the near future!
