Here's a link to a short Salon article on David Foster Wallace, and a brilliant commencement speech he gave at Kenyon College in 2005.

I don't even know what to say. It's no more shocking than any other suicide perhaps. Sadder, maybe, because of what an influence he's been on so much of what's being written right now in America. Sadder, because always in his work, despite what some people deemed overly self-conscious cleverness, was a deep and rare wisdom about the internal concentric layers of all things human. And we can't forget humility. He had that, too.

Post Road #16 available on Amazon

Hola friends,

Was informed by a Post Road editor that issue #16 (with my new nonfiction piece "Farewell") is available on Amazon.

Of course I want you to buy it because it has my piece in it, but I'm also a sincere believer in the literary magazine and think everyone should support them whenever possible.

So in the spirit of helping literature, supporting writers, and investing in the power of the printed word, here's the link to Amazon where you can purchase the "lite brite" copy of Post Road.
