Re: “Nationally acclaimed novelist Bret Lott is all-in

The worst kept secret in Charleston literary circles and CofC classrooms is where Lott finds some of his stories...

And David Foster Wallace did not espouse irony, he saw it as a mere critique not a resolution. The search for redemption killed him (and that is taking language seriously). Talk about being responsible for his work. From the March 9, 2009 issue of the New Yorker:

[As] Wallace saw it, irony could critique but it couldn’t nourish or redeem. He told McCaffery, “Look, man, we’d probably most of us agree that these are dark times, and stupid ones, but do we need fiction that does nothing but dramatize how dark and stupid everything is?”
