David Foster Wallace dies

Sad news: the 46-year old committed suicide on the 12th SeptemberInfinite Jest (1996) is a novel that divides opinion pretty sharply, but love it or loathe it (and my sense is that you’re supposed to do both at the same time) there’s nothing else quite like it in fiction.  I keep hoping that one day one of the CW students at Holloway will produce a work as crazily brilliant.  [AR]
