Who do you write like?

Apparently I write like David Foster Wallace, which is a surprise as before the analysis tool, I write like… told me, I hadn’t actually heard of him:

I Write Like by Mémoires, journal software. Analyze your writing!

But his novels sound interesting. The most praised, Infinite Jest, is set in the near future during a time of dystopian North American unification with all the accompanying separatist and terrorist movements. The terrorists try to get their hands on a film which is so perfect and so funny that viewers lose all ability and desire to do anything apart from view the film. Sounds like the sort of plot Douglas Coupland would come up with.

Foster Wallace committed suicide in 2008 leaving an unfinished novel, recently published posthumously.

So, has anyone read his stuff?
