Review: Consider the Lobster and Other Essays
Consider the Lobster and Other Essays by David Foster Wallace
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Love. So much love. Okay, it was odd reading about the porn awards on my subway ride to teach small Korean children at a church-run English academy, but it was also hilarious. And I'd read the last essay on talk radio before, in a compilation, but it was sufficiently awesome that I decided to read it again today while sitting in Korean immigration. The piece on McCain was fascinating, even a decade later, and I really liked how he looked at the ethics of cooking lobster. I really should get to Infinite Jest asap. What that really means in real time, I have no idea!
