Våren 2012 återlanserade Natur & Kultur David Foster Wallaces författarskap för en svensk publik, med debutromanen Systemets sopkvast från 1987 och den postumt utgivna Blek kung. I samband med utgivningen arrangerades ett stort seminarium på Internationell författarscen i Stockholm, där de medverkande - Jan Gradvall, Eva Johansson, Jens Liljestrand, Martina Lowden, Malte Persson och översättaren Alva Dahl - fick i uppdrag att välja var sin textual content de tyckte var särskilt viktig att översätta.
Dessa texter utgör grunden för det urval av DFW:s noveller och essäer som nu utkommer i samlingen Texter. Texterna representerar olika skeden och strömningar i författarskapet. Där finns snillet, ensamheten, lekfullheten, självreflektionen, humorn, specialiseringen, metafysiken och inveckladheten. Där finns de välansade gräsmattorna, de pinsamma ovanorna och de högröda mansansiktena. Den detaljhysteriskt genomborrande sakprosan och den ohyggligt uppfinningsrika fiktionsprosan. Liksom urvalet grodde ur ett samtal talar texterna med varandra, med oss, ambivalent och glasklart.
