"Infinite Jest" - David Foster Wallace; Illustrations by Benjamin Birdie
According to his 2008 obituary in the New York Times (after hanging himself), David Foster Wallace was “a versatile writer of seemingly bottomless energy…a maximalist, exhibiting in his work a huge, even manic curiosity—about the physical world, about the much larger universe of human feelings and bout the complexity of living in America at the end of the 20th century.” Wallace talked about fiction as being “nourishing, redemptive,” and that by reading it “we become less alone inside.”
