David Foster Wallace, R.I.P.
David Foster Wallace was found dead of an apparent suicide on Friday. He was 46.
As I recently mentioned, I've never read Infinite Jest, his most famous and well-respected work (though I have read The Broom of the System and Girl with Curious Hair). I think I'll be moving it to the top of my reading list. I've tried reading it a couple of times before. What a shame that this is what will probably finally get me to finish it.
