"The great thing about irony is that it splits things apart, gets up above them so we can see the flaws and hypocrisies and duplicates." -- David Foster Wallace
David Foster Wallace (February 21, 1962 — September 12, 2008) was an American author of novels, essays, and short stories, and a professor at Pomona College in Claremont, California.
