Consider the Lobster: And Other Essays

Consider the Lobster: And Other Essays - David Foster Wallace Heady.... David Foster Wallace's essays are hands down some of the smartest, funniest essays I've ever read. But what's so refreshing about his writing is that he's smart, but not in a "look at me, I'm so friggin' smart, way smarter than you" kind of way, but a humble, come join me on my journey as I try to figure out these life puzzles kind of way. I see much has been written on his "porn industry" piece and the article on John McCain, but hands down, my absolute favorite was the review of Tracy Austin's book, titled "How Tracy Austin Broke My Heart". Worth the price of the book just for those few pages, which had me doubling over in laughter.
