I confess, I hated David Foster Wallace's fiction, and considered him a dangerous influence on the young (my favorite thing of his remains a piece on David Lynch published before the release of Lost Highway); but, wow, this is unexpected.

Very shocking. I was never a huge fan, beyond a short story here and there, but this came out of left field.

Still, it seems like he was relatively quiet in the past 2-3 years. Or am I wrong?
