The promotional material for this paperback original calls it "a biography in five days," a startling claim that the book fully justifies. In 1996, Rolling Stone journalist David Lipsky spent most of a week with 26-year-old novelist David Foster Wallace on the last leg of his book tour for Infinite Jest. Their Midwestern junket was far more revealing and fun than any grand retreat with a Great American Author. Between readings and signings, Wallace and Lipsky chatted, watched TV, played chess, killed time at the airport and walked the writer's dogs. In many ways, Although Of Course You End Become Yourself stands as the best memorial to Wallace, a wildly engaging writer who committed suicide in 2008, at the tender age of 46.
