The Cambridge Companion to David Foster Wallace
Best known for his masterpiece Infinite Jest, David Foster Wallace re-invented fiction and non-fiction for a generation with his groundbreaking and original work. Wallace's desire to blend formal innovation with the communicative function of literature resulted in works that appeal as much to a reader's intellect as they do emotion. The essays in this Companion, written by top Wallace scholars, offer a historical and cultural context for grasping Wallace's significance, provide rigorous individual readings of each of his major works, and address the key themes and concerns of these works.
