Hal Incandenza, Infinite Jest, David Foster Wallace
Hal is the only extant Incandenza who looks in any way ethnic. His late father had been as a young man darkly tall, high flat Pima-tribe cheekbones and very black hair Brylcreemed back so tight there’d been a kind of enforced widow’s peak. Himself had looked ethnic, but he isn’t extant. Hal is sleek, sort of radiantly dark, almost otterish, only slightly tall, eyes blue but darkly so, and unburnable even w/o sunscreen, his untanned feet the color of weak tea, his nose ever unpeeling but slightly shiny. His sleekness isn’t oily so much as moist, milky; Hal worries secretly that he looks half-feminine.  (Multiple suggestions, and happy 50th birthday)

RIP, Dave.

Happy 50th, DFW.

Not how I’d ever pictured Hal, considering descriptions of his enormous tennis-arm muscles and marijuana habit and love for sweets (so, his face couldn’t possibly look this scrawny), but reblogging for sheer heartache factor.
