In his lifetime, David Foster Wallace was lauded by critics and loved by fans. Through his novels, such as his masterpiece 'Infinite Jest', his short stories and essays, he explored consciousness and perceptions of reality that uphold the spirit of great Modernist writing.
Journalist and essayist DT Max wrote his biography, 'Every Love Story Is A Ghost Story'. DT Max discusses Wallace's writing with writer David Baddiel who considers that Wallace became a hero for a new generation of American authors who rejected the Bellow-Roth-Updike-Mailer way of being, before they take questions from the audience. The event is chaired by critic Sam Leith.
