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?
