R.I.P. David Rakoff

Essayist David Rakoff was funny. Dark, super-smart, introspective without being annoying, and funny. Searingly, painfully, funny. Imagine if David Sedaris had even less patience for other people’s stupidity. And was Canadian. That’s a very lazy introduction to David Rakoff. The patrons you introduce him to now will be gutted that there will be no more words. But do it anyway. You’ll get readers’ advisory angel poiuts.
