"The Legacy of David Foster Wallace is a necessary book--it will find a place in virtually every university and college library across the land. Surely it will be among the first critical works consulted by any scholar or student venturing into the work of Wallace and will interest the more ordinary, if unusually ambitious, reader as well."--Mark McGurl, author, The Program Era

"This is a collection whose character is faithful to the spirit of Wallace's work: considerate, intelligent, funny, even self-deprecating--an excellent addition to both the fan's and the critic's library."--Lydia Millet, Pulitzer Prize finalist for Love in Infant Monkeys
