During his life, David Foster Wallace – a Pomona College professor – was already considered by many to be one of the most influential and brilliant writers of his time. Since his death in 2008, that consensus seems to have grown to fever pitch, nearly drowning out careful consideration of his work itself. The Pomona Student Union is honored to present a discussion of Wallace’s legacy, life, and – primarily – of the work that brought him to the front of American literature (and to Pomona College). Joining us for this discussion are Jonathan Lethem (novelist, essayist, and Pomona’s Roy E. Disney Professor of Creative Writing and English), Laura Miller (author and writer for Salon and The New York Times Book Review, among others), and D.T. Max (writer for The New Yorker and Wallace’s biographer).
