Writer David Foster Wallace found dead – Los Angeles Times

David Foster Wallace, from the story linked above:

Wallace won a cult following for his dark humor and ironic wit, which was on display in “The Broom of the System,” his 1987 debut novel; “Girl With Curious Hair,” a 1989 collection of short stories, and “A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never Do Again: Essays and Arguments” (1997). In 1997, he also received a grant from the MacArthur Foundation.

Mr. Wallace hanged himself.

How sad.

Such a talented man.

My thoughts and prayers are with his wife right now. She came home and found her husband’s body.
