5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 9 Jan. 2014
Highly readable, hugely enjoyable biography - gives an excellent, balanced account of DFW's life. Can't recommend it enough. Even if I wasn't such a big DFW fan, actually even if I had never heard of him this would have still been a fabulous read.

Quote from p.4: "It is possible that a starving African farmer has less sense of injustice than a middle-aged Western male who has never been fellated." After that, how could you not read on...

If all meaning lies in the journey and not the destination and like me you might have just come to realise (despite having heard/read about it many times before) that that could actually be the truth, with all its implications, then I could not think of a better travelling companion on the first few miles of awareness than this book.

Many thanks, Michael Foley.
