David Foster Wallace once wrote that good fiction should help readers to "become less alone inside." But the acclaimed author of "Infinite Jest" succumbed to his own lengthy battle with depression and committed suicide in 2008. We look back at the life and work of Wallace with his biographer, D.T. Max.

Host: Michael Krasny


  • D.T. Max, staff writer at The New Yorker and author of the new biography "Every Love Story is a Ghost Story: A Life of David Foster Wallace"
