“I’m so scared of dying without ever being really seen. Can you understand? Are you enough of a big thin prematurely stooped young bespectacled man, even with your whole life still ahead of you, to understand? Can you see I was giving it all I had? That I was in there, out there in the heat, listening, webbed with nerves? A self that touches all edges, I remember she said. I felt it in a way I fear you and your generation never could, son. It was less like falling than being shot out of something, is the way I recall it. It did not did not happen in slow motion. One minute I was at a dead and beautiful forward run for the ball, the next minute there were hands at my back and nothing underfoot like a push down a stairway.”— from Infinite Jest, by David Foster Wallace
Apparently DFW wrote Infinite Jest for this woman who was married with kids. Wallace’s attraction to her is by no means a surprise as he fetishized mothers-of-two. The crazy thing is that he met up with a hit man to discuss the logistics of taking out this woman’s husband with the hopes that he would win her over with IJ and would transfer her love of her dead husband over to DFW. We can debate whether he wanted motherly or romantic love, but still. What a story!
Does he get any cooler/fucked up?!
