CONSIDER THE LOBSTER AND OTHER ESSAYS

DAVID FOSTER-WALLACE    Book Number: 86859    Product format: Paperback

A companion to A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again code 86856 here is the visionary, craftsman and comedian back again with a subversive and hit collection. Do lobsters feel pain? Did Franz Kafka have a sick sense of humour? What is John Updike's deal anyway? David Foster Wallace immerses himself in a three-ring circus that is the presidential race in order to document one of the most vicious campaigns in recent history. He strolls from booth to booth at a lobster festival in Maine and risks life and limb to get to the bottom of the lobster question. Some of the other ten essays include such titles as Authority and American Usage, How Tracy Austin Broke My Heart, and Up, Simba. His sharp mind delves into some of life's most delicious and distinctly modern topics. Reprinted from the 2005 original collection in this new paperback of 343pp with some skilled typography in the final essay entitled Host.
