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.


This is absolutely terrible. My thoughts go out to Wallace's family and we will all feel the hole created from his absence.

I remember when I first heard the news about this. Shocked me profoundly. I'm a huge fan of Wallace's work.
