When I think of summer, I think of road trips: Cruising down the highway with the radio blasting, stopping at every opportunity for gas station snacks, and long, meandering conversations with friends. A road trip is about the journey as much as the destination. So imagine the opportunity to road trip with an author you love, getting to know him in the intimacy of late night road conversations. That’s exactly what David Lipsky does over the course of a few days in the summer of 1996. He reports back on these conversations with David Foster Wallace in Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself, allowing us a personal view of a brilliant and complicated writer.
