Two Terrific New Pieces on DFW

An inspired, informed review of The Pale King from Kyle Beachy (one of the writers I was proud to bring into the St. Louis Magazine contributors’ fold during my time there), and a perceptive, probing essay by Leland de la Durantaye that explores both DFW’s “Fate, Time, and Language” philosophy thesis and his Kenyon commencement address. Both are worth reading in full.
