This week, D. T. Max has been writing on Page-Turner about documents and artifacts he drew on for "Every Love Story Is a Ghost Story," his recently published biography of David Foster Wallace. Here Max talks with Sasha Weiss about the challenges of writing about Wallace, and how Wallace, who once described himself as "an exhibitionist who wants to hide, but is unsuccessful at hiding" might feel about his biography.
