David Foster Wallace tributes  JAN 22 2010

The latest issue of Five Dials, a free PDF-only literary magazine published by Hamish Hamilton, features reprints of tributes to David Foster Wallace given by his family and friends shortly after his death in late 2008. Included are tributes by Zadie Smith, Amy Wallace-Havens (DFW's sister), George Saunders, and Don DeLillo. The introduction is from A Supposedly Fun Thing:

Finally, know that an unshot skeet's movement against the vast lapis lazuli dome of the open ocean's sky is sun-like -- i.e. orange and parabolic and right-to-left -- and that its disappearance into the sea is edge-first and splashless and sad.
