A well researched look at the life of a brilliant human and great author. The author never attempts to discern where DFW demons originate but otherwise this is a pretty well done biography. Worth it if you are interested in DFW.

Someone had to do a biography eventually, I suppose. This first effort is rich in facts but disappointing in the author's failure to do any examination of what those facts might mean. A mediocre treatment of a great writer and conflicted man.
