Volume of Wallace Letters - Can You Help?

UPDATE: Second reminder! Please get in touch if you have anything to contribute to this upcoming publication.



Stephen J. Burn (David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest, Second Edition: A Reader's Guide, Conversations with David Foster Wallace, and the upcoming, A Companion to David Foster Wallace Studies with Marshall Boswell) is working with the estate of David Foster Wallace on a collection of David Foster Wallace's letters and he'd love your help.

Over to Stephen:

I’m currently working with the David Foster Wallace estate to prepare an edited volume of Wallace’s letters for publication. If you corresponded with Wallace, and have copies of a letter, postcard, or email that you’d be willing to share with me, then I’d be very grateful to hear from you; my email address is: Stephen.burn [at] (replace [at] with @ - just a little spam block - Nick)

Even brief notes can be helpful in the context of this project, and because my main focus is on Wallace as a writer, letters can be edited to preserve fundamentally private matters.

Thank you, Stephen Burn”

If you can help out I strongly encourage you to get in touch with Stephen via the email above (ensure you edit it to remove the spam block) or contact him via me here.
