"David Foster Wallace, the novelist, essayist and humorist best known for his 1996 novel "Infinite Jest," was found dead Friday night at his home in Claremont, according to the Claremont Police Department. He was 46.
Jackie Morales, a records clerk at the department, said Wallace's wife called police at 9:30 p.m. Friday saying she had returned home to find that her husband had hanged himself."
Cue rabid book buying.
Cue waves of "it's all footnotes" shit talkers.
You love the tortured artists because they're just so tortured but can't stand it when they stop being tortured. However they stop.
