David Foster Wallace: 1962-2008

Terribly sad. One of my favorite novelists and essayists.

I saw him read a couple of times. It seemed excruciating for him, but the standing-room-only crowds were delighted and engaged by his work. He was brilliant, funny, insightful. Infinite Jest is a major book, not to be missed.
