Content descriptions

General Note: "A Library of America special publication."
Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references.
Summary, etc.: Both a onetime “near-great junior tennis player” and a lifelong connoisseur of the finer points of the game, David Foster Wallace wrote about tennis with the authority of an insider, the style of a literary virtuoso, and the disarming admiration of an irrepressible fan. Including his masterful profiles of Roger Federer, Michael Joyce, and Tracy Austin, String Theory gathers all five of Wallace’s famous essays on tennis, pieces that have been hailed by sportswriters and literary critics alike as some of the greatest and most innovative magazine writing in recent memory.
Subject: Tennis.
