David Foster Wallace, Cont'd

For more on David Foster Wallace, check out The Howling Fantods, a fansite which has linked to obituaries and tributes. They point out that Harper's magazine has put Wallace's (or DFW in fanspeak) articles up in PDF. The classic one to read, though they all approach genius, is Shipping Out [PDF], about his voyage on a cruise ship. That article and others appeared in A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again. Watch DFW tell Charlie Rose about the book here.
