About the Author
Praise For This Is Water: Some Thoughts, Delivered on a Significant Occasion, about Living a Compassionate Life…
"David Foster Wallace's unbelievable graduation speech...will inspire you."
"We read Wallace because he forces us to think. He makes us consider what's beneath us and around us--like water."
-The Christian Science Monitor
"Think of it as The Last Lecture for intellectuals."
"None of the cloudlessly sane and true things he had to say about life in 2005 are any less sane or true today...[This is Water] reminds us of [Wallace's] strength and goodness and decency--the parts of him the terrible master [the mind] could never defeat, and never will."
-New York Times Book Review
"Striking...is [Wallace's] evocative insight and humor."
