David Foster Wallace
Like everyone, I was very, very sad to get the news of David Foster Wallace’s death. He was probably the best writer of our generation, and an inspiration to many of us in the trenches. I always come back to his work as a reminder of what it’s possible to do with words and images and ideas. He may have been the only writer truly up to the task of trying to make some sense of the absurdity of this world we find ourselves in.
