I have not read any else of Foster Wallace's, though I have Infinite Jest in the TBR pile.

Anyone else read/love/hate any of his works?
I read and absolutely loved Infinite Jest, but it was long enough ago that the details are mostly gone. It's the only work by Wallace that I've read. Since there will obviously be no more... I'm in no hurry to "catch up."

I'm still waiting for a Vonnegut successor, as well. I thought for a while that Wallace might be a candidate to eventually fill those shoes. But alas, they're both gone and I'm alone.
