Last week saw the arrival of The Legacy of David Foster Wallace, a wonderful collection of essays by Wallace critics, friends and colleagues. My piece in the collection, “Becoming Yourself: David Foster Wallace and the Afterlife of Reception,” considered Wallace’s legacy through his communities of readership on Amazon and I feel very lucky to be in such august company. For example, my essay is nestled between Dave Eggers and Jonathan Franzen!
Here’s the full list of contributors:
Samuel Cohen (co-editor)
Lee Konstantinou (co-editor)
Ira B. Nadel
Thanks very much to Lee and Sam for including me!
