David Lipsky | Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip with David Foster Wallace
When: Saturday, April 17, 2010 at 4:00PM
Where: Room 108
Cost: Free

One of the most talented authors of his generation, David Foster Wallace achieved international literary success with Infinite Jest, a darkly comic and sprawling novel that Time magazine included on its 100 Best English-Language Novels list. In his new book, David Lipsky recalls a five-day period he spent with Wallace during the last leg of the Infinite Jest tour. He offers new insight into the troubled literary genius—relaying intimate conversations he had with Wallace about Wallace’s writing and interior life. Lipsky is a contributing editor to Rolling Stone magazine, with articles and short fiction appearing in the New Yorker, New York Times, New York Times Book Review, and Harper's. His nonfiction book Absolutely American: Four Years at West Point won the Time magazine Best Book of the Year Award.

Hi Pat - where was this? Did you attend?
Sorry for the late response. This was held at the annual Free Library Festival at the parkway central branch on Logan Square. The author event was okay - 3 out of 5 stars. I intend to read the book. David Lipsky was the driver for DFW for a week of the "Infinite Jest" tour. Of course you end up becoming yourself.
