David Foster Wallace and the New Sincerity in American Fiction

examining the idea that DFW is a vanguard in this post-postmodernism wave of authorial sincerity, through the lens of Lionel Trilling's 1972 book Sincerity and Authenticity, where sincerity has to do with inter-personal communication and authenticity simply means being true to the self. sincerity is dialogic in the sense that it requires the reader to participate. great essay
