Amy Wallace-Havens on Her Brother

August 23, 2009

Amy Wallace-Havens is David Foster Wallace's sister. She talks with Anne Strainchamps about growing up with her brother and living without him now.


Your interview of Amy Wallace-Havens made a great impression on me for the reminder of how supposedly little things in life can be so important. This segment will probably become an assigned audio clip for the intro sociology classes that I teach, maybe in a section on interpersonal relationships or on how we deal with crises.

I'm glad that his sister was willing to share these painful and happy memories. Thanks!
