- @aweissman @mailemeloy Loved Slouching Towards Bethlehem. I'm also thinking of sending her some DFW (Big Red Sun, Consider the Lobster) but we'll see if she enjoys dabbling in fiction first.
- "Consider the Lobster" (the book), by DFW. Highly recommend the essays "Authority and American Usage", "How Tracy Austin Broke My Heart", "Joseph Frank's Dostoevsky", "The View from Mrs. Thompson's", and "Host" https://t.co/iY7gzN3Ndj 9/
A collection of essays by the award-winning author of Infinite Jest shares whimsical and biting observations about such topics as the Bush-Kerry presidential race, the pain experienced by lobsters while they are being prepared for the feast, and Franz Kafka's questionable sense of humor. Reprint.
