According to an article on the CBC news site and the Los Angeles Times, the body of author David Foster Wallace was discovered by his wife in the family home, an apparent suicide.
My deepest condolences to Mr.Wallace's wife and suriviving family members.
He was an extraordinary talent, a writer mentioned as a possible heir to Thomas Pynchon, and if that isn't high praise, I dunno what is.
Mr. Wallace's death reminds everyone in the arts what a toll our calling can have on us.
Today, we have lost a truly great one.
