Reviews
"This is an original, fearless reading of Wallace that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to my students. Even if they disagreed with it, it would get them thinking--and I bet they'd learn something, as I did. Baskin's readings are persuasive, bold, enterprising, and unafraid of disrupting conventional academic hermeneutics. We need books like this."--James Wood "Harvard University "
"Since his death a decade ago, a lot of smart writing on David Foster Wallace has appeared in print. This insightful new book is among the smartest. Ordinary Unhappiness is a luminous model of how philosophers and literary critics might together help us see ourselves and our situation more clearly."--Lee Konstantinou "University of Maryland, College Park "
