Sad News

David Foster Wallace, a writer often described as "dark", "post-modern" and "ironic"  expressed the ultimate irony and committed suicide in his California home Friday night. Wallace wrote the heavyweight (in more ways than one) rambling, footnoted, non-linear novel Infinite Jest and my favorite collection of his essays,
A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again

He was a solid craftsman in his approach to writing, but never let his precision interfere with his wit and humor.

Also by Wallace:

He was 46.

Thus spake the rabbit.
