::. Say goodbye to DFW… (16-09-2008 10:25)


David Foster Wallace, the talented and acclaimed american author is no longer with us. He hanged himself at his home on September 12, 2008.

A short bio:
David Foster Wallace has been the award winning author of several novels, more than a few short stories, and numerous articles, as well as a college professor of English. Still in his 30's, David has been called one of America's most important young authors and often has been compared to Thomas Pynchon, though he tended to shrug off that association.
He is most widely known for his epic (1000+ page) novel, Infinite Jest published in 1996 and critically acclaimed by critics and readers alike. Topics covered in Wallace's work are wide ranging, but he seemed to have a special interest in American culture, addictions, and excess. Ironically, because of his edgy body of work and his public persona, DFW has gained a cult following and has become through his short life somewhat of a celebrity himself.

The Time Magazine named Infinite Jest in its issue of the "100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005."
