From the Dept. of Accidents

The current, September 25th, issue of the London Review of Books must’ve gone to print before the news of David Foster Wallace's suicide broke, making the included letter from the author of this review possibly the cruellest inadvertent obituary ever.

The conclusion of the letter states that Wallace’s recent fiction "bears the stamp of a writer that may have come to the same conclusion that I did: some strategies for some writers become dead ends".

The letter has, understandably, been removed from their website.
