QT appears in a David Foster Wallace essay

After knowing novelist David Foster Wallace committed suicide on 12 september, (an author who is not very well known in my country), I’ve tried to find out about him.



I found this, an essay he wrote in 1996 : David Lynch Keeps His Head



here’s an extract :



“It seems to me fair to say that the commercial Hollywood phenomenon that is Mr. Quentin Tarantino would not exist without David Lynch as a touchstone, a set of allusive codes and contexts in the viewers midbrain.”
