D.T. Max has joined the roster of speakers for “Writers on Writers”— the 31st annual Key West Literary Seminar. Max will appear at the second session, January 17-20, 2013, where he will discuss the life of David Foster Wallace.
Max’s latest book is Every Love Story Is A Ghost Story: A Life of David Foster Wallace. Written with access to hundreds of unpublished letters, manuscripts, and audio tapes, Every Love Story Is A Ghost Story presents a fresh, intimate, and heartbreaking study of the brilliant novelist whose suicide in 2008 shocked the literary community. Max’s book has been a national bestseller and is one of the most widely admired biographies of the year.
In Key West, Max joins a list of acclaimed writers that includes Blake Bailey (Cheever: A Life), Geoff Dyer (Out of Sheer Rage), Colm Tóibín (The Master), and Robert D. Richardson (Emerson: The Mind on Fire), among many others. Max’s participation ensures that one of the most vibrant and tragic literary figures of recent times will figure significantly in the discussion of the lives and works of some of the great writers of all time.
Seats are still available for the second session. Advance registration is required to attend.
