Six DFW-Related Books in 2012

The Howling Fantods lists 6 DFW-related books that it claims will publish this year.

I’ve got 2 of them logged on my Interesting New Books 2012 list: Conversations with David Foster Wallace, and The Legacy of David Foster Wallace, edited by Samuel Cohen and Lee Konstantinou.

D.T. Max’s bio, Every Love Story is a Ghost Story: A life of David Foster Wallace, looks like it’ll probably release this year. I have a hard time believing Both Flesh and Not Uncollected Non-fiction of David Foster Wallace will publish this year, but who knows.

Can 2013 hold even more for DFW studies?

LADY CHATTERLEY'S BROTHER

Two long essays of 10,000 words each on sex in—and out of—literature . . .

The first essay dives in to Nicholson Baker’s “sex trilogy,” explaining just what Baker is up to here and why these books ultimately fail to be as sexy as Baker might wish.

From there the book moves on to the second essay, which explains just why Spaniard Javier Marías does right what Baker does wrong . . .


THE LATIN AMERICAN MIXTAPE

5 essays. 2 interviews.

All in all, over 25,000 words of Latin American literary goodness.

3 never-before-published essays, including “The Digression”—a 4,000-word piece on the most important digression in César Aira’s career.
