"The library, and step on it"




In my humble opinion, David Foster Wallace is one of the best writers of the past century. His beautiful use of the English language, his rich, complex plot lines, and the introspection into the human conscious remain unrivaled by most. His work makes me laugh, cry and question this existence. Fun fact -- he grew up in Urbana. Sometimes I'd wander the streets and marvel at the fact that he had likely done the same.

R.I.P. Mr. Wallace.

You should watch/listen to 'This is Water' if you have not
(a very insightful commencement speech he gave before departing this earth)
