The dark side of David Foster Wallace

Sad to hear that David Foster Wallace has commited suicide. I have to admit I never made it to the end of Infinite Jest, but I did enjoy a book of his essays that I once read.

Oh, gosh that's sad, though I never actually got round to reading him. I guess maybe I should now - he was always very well regarded and compared to other writers that I like.
