Open to UT students, faculty, and staff only.  D.T. Max will be speaking about his work Tuesday, 16 April 2013 at 1:30 pm in the Mosley Room, HRC.

D.T. Max is a staff writer for the New Yorker, where he has published a series of articles on the late David Foster Wallace. Though Wallace was only 46 when he died, he left an enormous legacy of literature, including three novels (one published posthumously), three collections of short stories, and eight works of nonfiction, including dozens of essays.

Now, following extensive research in the David Foster Wallace archive at UT's Harry Ransom Center, Max has published a fascinating biography of the author, entitled Every Love Story is a Ghost Story: A Life of David Foster Wallace. D.T. Max will discuss the late author, as well as his own research process in writing the biography.
