A Passing:

David Foster Wallace

February 21 1962 -- September 12, 2008

This one is hard to believe folks. Whatever you thought of him, it would be difficult to deny David Foster Wallace's importance among contemporary novelists.

Like me and a number of the readers here, he was a graduate of the University of Arizona's MFA program, a man who had achieved literary success beyond what many of us dare to hope.

And yet.

Life is complicated, isn't it?

David Foster Wallace, dead at 46. He shall be missed.
