David Wallace, Rest in Peace

This is devastating news.

I feel filled to the brim with the clich├ęs that sadness brings on.

I am inexpressably grateful to David Foster Wallace for his books, and my heart and condolences go out to those who were close to him, along with the manifold readers whose lives have been changed by his work.

Even in this mournful and appalled state of mind, reading “Up, Simba” today, I laughed out loud again and again.
