I have seen a lot of links to articles about DFW on this site and thought it may be a good idea to create a thread for a one-stop-shopping experience, so to speak. Have any of you had the chance to see this? It's Rolling Stone's tribute to DFW. It's called "The Lost Years and Last Days of David Foster Wallace" and is written by David Lipsky.

DEATH IS NOT THE END: David Foster Wallace: His Legacy and his Critics by Jon Baskin for The Point Magazine (2009) is a wonderful, thoughtful essay on DFW's writing.

There are possible SPOILERS for IJ and Good Old Neon (short story from Oblivion that is amazing and highly recommended).

The MetaFilter DFW 'memorial' thread is filled with thoughtful comments and also many many links to articles, tributes, and other DFW marginalia.
