Between DeadArtistsAreBetter and the fact that he wrote some of the most experimental fiction of his time, Wallace will, with Creator/JonathanFranzen (a good friend and frequent correspondent of his and a [[WordOfSaintPaul common if controversial source of information on Wallace himself]]), likely be remembered as the premier American LitFic writer of the '90s and '00s, and (most likely) of Generation X more generally (with DaveEggers and Creator/ChuckPalahniuk coming in a distant third).

His group of short stories all going by the title "Brief Interviews with Hideous Men" (four of which appear in his short story collection ''Brief Interviews With Hideous Men'' along with a bunch of other, unrelated stories) was adapted in 2008 by Jon Krasinski (aka Jim from ''TheOffice'') in his first foray into directing. Unfortunately, Wallace never saw it. After a long battle with severe depression, he committed suicide by hanging on September 12, 2008 at the age of 46.
