The Limits of Control

Friday, September 19, 2008


David Foster Wallace died last Friday at the age of 46. Known best as a fiction writer, he was also a journalist who wrote singular pieces about subjects as varied as porn industry awards, tennis-as-religion, luxury cruises, presidential campaigning, talk radio stamina, Midwestern wind patterns and lobster sentience. Pomona College professor Kathleen Fitzpatrick remembers Wallace’s point of view.

I am simply curious at how scrupulous you were in this story to not mention the cause of death... Is there a reason to avoid it?
