By: David Foster Wallace
Kicking off our Daily Read series, we’ve got a stellar book that might take you more than one day, from one of our personal favorite writers in the world. David Foster Wallace grew up as a junior tennis player, and has covered the sport from many angles. String Theory will give you insights that go way beyond what you get by reading the typical article in a tennis magazine or listening to a color commentator on TV. This is a collection of essays, each of which is great in its own unique way.
An instant classic of American sportswriting—the tennis essays of David Foster Wallace, “the best mind of his generation” (A. O. Scott) and “the best tennis-writer of all time” (New York Times)
