Fans who regard David Foster Wallace (1962-2008) as simply a novelist are missing something. The much-mourned author of Infinite Jest and The Pale King also gifted us with the essay collections Consider the Lobster and A Supposedly Funny Thing I'll Never Do Again. For readers, posthumous gatherings are often hodge-podge ventures, but Both Flesh and Not is wonderfully full-bodied. Displaying the diversity of his previous bundles, this new collection features pieces on topics including professional tennis, confabulation, the AIDS epidemic, higher mathematics, Terminator 2 and the effects of television on young writers. Now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
