David Foster Wallace commits suicide

[What a drag. I did perceive a deep melancholy that hung over his
work, but I thought he had enough of a humorous side to not off
himself. Just in the past month I’ve found myself extolling his
writings to other boho intellectuals around the Bay Area. I thought
his essays were really first-rate, too…even though I didn’t always
agree with him. He wrote an essay on academic postmodernism and young
people in the 1990s constatnlty resorting to irony almost as a
Pavlovian response. I forget the name of the essay, but he argued that
the hyperironic take on things was a way of saying "I’m trapped!
Someone help me out of this." Brilliant, and sorta horribly….ironic?
This guy had some genius writing chops, and I’m really saddened by his
death.- rmjon23]

Novelist David Foster Wallace found dead
21 minutes ago

CLAREMONT, Calif. – David Foster Wallace, the author best known for
his 1996 novel "Infinite Jest," was found dead in his home, according
to police. He was 46.

Wallace’s wife found her husband had hanged himself when she returned
home about 9:30 p.m. Friday, said Jackie Morales, a records clerk with
the Claremont Police Department.

Wallace taught creative writing and English at nearby Pomona College.

"He cared deeply for his students and transformed the lives of many
young people," said Dean Gary Kates. "It’s a great loss to our
teaching faculty."

Wallace’s first novel, "The Broom of the System," gained national
attention in 1987 for its ambition and offbeat humor. The New York
Times said the 24-year-old author "attempts to give us a portrait,
through a combination of Joycean word games, literary parody and zany
picaresque adventure, of a contemporary America run amok."

Published in 1996, "Infinite Jest" cemented Wallace’s reputation as a
major American literary figure. The 1,000-plus-page tome, praised for
its complexity and dark wit, topped many best-of lists. Time Magazine
named "Infinite Jest" in its issue of the "100 Best English-language
Novels from 1923 to 2005."

Wallace received a "genius grant" from the MacArthur Foundation in
1997.

In 2002, Wallace was hired to teach at Pomona in a tenured English
Department position endowed by Roy E. Disney. Kates said when the
school began searching for the ideal candidate, Wallace was the first
person considered.

"The committee said, ‘we need a person like David Foster Wallace.’
They said that in the abstract," Kates said. "When he was approached
and accepted, they were heads over heels. He was really the ideal
person for the position."

Wallace’s short fiction was published in Esquire, GQ, Harper’s, The
New Yorker and the Paris Review. Collections of his short stories were
published as "Girl With Curious Hair" and "Brief Interviews With
Hideous Men."

He wrote nonfiction for several publications, including an essay on
the U.S. Open for Tennis magazine and a profile of the director David
Lynch for Premiere.

Born in Ithaca, N.Y., Wallace attended Amherst College and the
University of Arizona.

(Corrects school he attended to Arizona, not Illinois.)

Witchcraft as Winning Soccer (Football) Strategy

      KINSHASA, Congo (AP) – Accusations that a football player was
using witchcraft during a local match in eastern Congo sparked a
riot that killed 13 people, a U.N.-funded radio station reported
Monday.
      Most of the victims were between the ages of 11 and 16, Radio
Okapi said. They were suffocated during the mayhem Sunday in
Butembo in eastern Congo’s North Kivu province.
      Radio Okapi said police tried to control the violence at Matokeo
stadium by firing guns into the air to protect their commander, who
was hit in the head and wounded by fans.
      The two local clubs involved were Socozaki and Nyuki System, the
radio said.
      Dozens of teenagers marched through Butembo’s dirt streets on
Monday in protest and the regional governor paid a visit to the
hospital.
      North Kivu has been the epicenter of violence between Congo’s
army and rebels over the last year which has displaced hundreds of
thousands of people.
