David Foster Wallace, RIP

I was shocked to hear over the weekend that David Foster Wallace had been found dead, in an apparent suicide, in California on Friday. A brilliant journalist and novelist who could convey more in a footnote (which he used constantly) than most writers can in a complete sentence, Wallace will be very much missed. If you haven't read "Consider the Lobster," please do- it's his most essential work.
