Wallace, David Foster (Author)
Writer David Foster Wallace was born in Ithaca, New York on February 21, 1962. He received a B.A. from Amherst College in Massachusetts. He was working on his master's degree in creative writing at the University of Arizona when he published his debut novel The Broom of the System (1987).

He spent four years researching and writing this novel. His first collection of short stories was Girl with Curious Hair (1989).
