David Foster Wallace’s birthday


Originally shared by Kenny Chaffin

It’s the birthday of David Foster Wallace, born in Ithaca, New York (1962). He wrote Infinite Jest (1996), which was 1,079 pages long with 388 footnotes. It was dense and intellectual, a futurist novel about addiction, tennis, and separatist groups, among many other subjects. But it was a best-seller, and it propelled Wallace into the literary spotlight.
