The End of the Tour is an adaptation of David Lipsky's book about a 5 day weekend he spent with Infinite Jest author David Foster Wallace at the end of his book tour. David LIpsky was a reporter for Rolling Stone, but the article he was sent to write was never published in the magazine. He tape recorded his conversations with Wallace, and after Wallace's suicide at 46, he published his memoir of their time together, which he said was transformative.

David Lipsky had published his own book, to very modest success and couldn't believe the glowing reviews of Wallace's Infinite Jest. He read the book himself, and was crushed to find the reviews were true.
