Consider the Lobster and Other EssaysConsider the Lobster and Other Essays by David Foster Wallace

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The man loved his footnotes.1 Shit, did I say that out loud? Sorry, wrong meeting.2 If you like DFW then you’ll probably love this.3 And even if you don’t, you should still read it.4 Read it and lament the loss of a great talent in American letters.

Footnotes:
1. Obviously.
2. Token Bill Hicks reference.
3. This is known as pandering to your audience.
4. Because I said so, alright?!
5. I’ve barely scratched the surface of DFW’s work and I’m already sad that he’s gone.
