I was shocked and saddened to hear about David Foster Wallace's apparent suicide at 46 last night. I am a huge fan of postmodern writing and this will sound really ridiculous, but I have been waiting 11 years for just the right time to break out my copy of Infinite Jest and give it my full attention.
For a fan's-eye view, go to The Howling Fantods!, an 11-year old site dedicated to Wallace's works. RIP, DFW. You will be missed.
