RIP David Foster Wallace

(Wallace is at about the 23 minute mark in the video.)

From the New York Times:

A prose magician, Mr. Wallace was capable of writing — in both his fiction and nonfiction — about everything from tennis to politics to lobsters, from the horrors of drug withdrawal to the small terrors of life aboard a luxury cruise ship, with humor and fervor and verve.

Another talented writer gone. Have you read "Infinite Jest"?

I have not, but I want to now. I wonder if the library has it.
