David Foster Wallace

I was introduced to this writer through our close reading practice and there is a link to the piece we looked at in the entry on November 8 – Close Reading of the Literary Kind. Tonight when I was waiting for our quiz I picked up one of the McSweeney’s and started to read another short story by the amazingly talented David Foster Wallace. I can’t post a link to the piece because I was interrupted before finishing and didn’t take a note of the title – d’oh!  I will tomorrow.

I did however Google DFW not ten minutes ago to try to find the piece and am devastated to learn that he killed himself over a year ago now. I am shocked. I am saddened. I have started reading this article from the ever brilliant New Yorker but to be honest, this on top of watching the news about Haiti has finished me. I am off to bed.
