Author David Foster Wallace – Dead By Apparent Suicide

Filed under: Miscellaneous — Justin Levine @ 12:14 pm



[posted by Justin Levine]

Author David Foster Wallace is dead after reports that his wife found that he had hanged himself.

I once saw him while he was working on a piece about former KFI talk show host John Ziegler. Never bothered to introduce myself though.

Wallace’s article can be found here.  Ziegler’s reaction to the article can be found here.

Additional afterthought:  After re-reading Wallace’s article, I can’t help but be struck by the irony of his commenting on Ziegler’s “bleak and merciless” outlook on life. Yet it is Wallace himself who ended up committing suicide.
