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

By

The Millions allows readers the opening paragraphs of DT Max’s David Foster Wallace biography:

“The Wallaces ate at 5:45 p.m. Afterward, Jim Wallace would read stories to Amy and David. And then every night the children would get fifteen minutes each in their beds to talk to Sally about anything that was on their minds. Lights-out was at 8:30 p.m., later as the years went on. After the children were asleep, the Wallace parents would talk, catch up with each other, watch the 10 p.m. evening news, and Jim would turn the lights out at 10:30 exactly.”

Every Love Story Is a Ghost Story: A Life of David Foster Wallace will be released on August 30th.
