Writer David Foster Wallace Dies At 46

CLAREMONT, Calif. (AP) - A police spokeswoman says writer David
Foster Wallace has been found dead in his Claremont home. He was
46.

Jackie Morales, a records clerk with the Claremont Police Department, says Wallace's wife found her husband had hanged himself when she returned home about 9:30 p.m. Friday.

Wallace's first novel, "The Broom of the System," gained national attention, but his best known work was 1996's "Infinite Jest."

He received a genius grant from the MacArthur Foundation in 1997 and he taught creative writing and English at nearby Pomona College.
