Every Love Story Is a Ghost Story: A Life of David Foster Wallace

Every Love Story Is a Ghost Story is more tantalising than it is satisfying. But that would be the case with any book about this complex and extraordinary man.

Although "Every Love Story Is a Ghost Story" necessarily ends on the tragic note of Wallace's suicide, its poignancy is in its emphasis on his years of hard-earned survival and his efforts, though unrealized, toward artistic transformation.

A stellar biography of a complicated subject: Max's portrait skillfully unites Wallace’s external and internal lives.
