Fiction is one of the few experiences where loneliness can be both confronted and relieved. Drugs, movies where stuff blows up, loud parties -- all these chase away loneliness by making me forget my name's Dave and I live in a one-by-one box of bone no other party can penetrate or know. Fiction, poetry, music, really deep serious sex, and, in various ways, religion -- these are the places (for me) where loneliness is countenanced, stared down, transfigured, treated. ― David Foster Wallace
“And Lo, for the Earth was empty of Form, and void. And Darkness was all over the Face of the Deep. And We said: 'Look at that fucker Dance.” ~~David Foster Wallace

DFW might not seem like he belongs pinned to my Rock n' Roll board, but he's a rock star for sure. Well, rock in the figurative sense that he does things with words that give me goose bumps and make me want to memorize lines like no Shakespeare work ever could.
