Upcoming Talk

I’ll be giving the keynote address at the David Foster Wallace Conference at Illinois State University in June 2017. Excited!

David Foster Wallace’s Balancing Books

In February 2017 Columbia University Press’s blog published an interview with me as well as my essay, “Spectacles Vehement and Untutored and Rude: Reading David Foster Wallace in the Age of Trump.”

I also had a great time talking with Matt Bucher and Dave Laird of The Great Concavity podcast about Balancing Books and all things Wallace.
