David Foster Wallace

It's sad to learn that one of my favorite writers, David Foster Wallace, was found dead earlier tonight. Wallace wrote the (massive) novel Infinite Jest as well as a number of brilliant essays, characterized by their expansive and often humorous footnotes. The guy was truly a genius as a shaper of prose. One of his best pieces, an analysis of Roger Federer's game, I referenced on this site a couple years ago. Wallace was a junior tennis phenom himself and wrote about the game with great insight and wit. He will be missed.
