This year... I know I'm going to think about David Foster Wallace and his family. I'll read some of his work
, and some of the things written about him.

arrived and along with it hundreds of articles and reviews
. The great majority mentioned that it contained some of Wallace's best writing to date (I agree completely), but also lamented as to what it might have been. But it wasn't sad, it was uplifting and rewarding and not at all simply about boredom.
A couple of David Foster Wallace interviews surfaced - one old, and one new (but not previously available in English):
