RIP, David Foster Wallace

 

I haven’t read any of his books, as a matter of fact, I wasn’t even aware that he was most famous for his book "Infinite Jest" (a modern American masterpeice, by most accounts). Of his very signficant output, all I had read was one single essay – the most beautiful essay on sports I have ever read, on my most favourite sportsman ever.

So, here’s pointing you to "Federer as a Religious Experience". A tiny snapshot of a fantastic writer. Someday, maybe, I will pick up one of his books as well.
