David Foster Wallace answers these uestions andin essays that are also enthralling narrative adventures Whether covering the three ring circus of John McCain's 2000 presidential race plunging into the wars between dictionary writers or confronting the World's Largest Lobster Cooker at the annual Maine Lobster Festival Wallace projects a uality of thought that is uniuely his and a voice as powerful and distinct as any in American letters It’s almost an embarrassment; say mortifying to even comment on a book whose author has an absolute mastery of the English language If English was made of colors this book would be its acid trip Consider the Lobster is a collection of essays on various topics from the AVN Awards AVN is the Oscars of the porn industry and to open the book with this essay was a brilliant hook for the reader to the funny side of Kafka to the suffering of lobsters at Maine’s Lobster FestWallace a self described SNOOT of the bard’s verse writes like a salt and pepper professor that put the image of Billy Connelly during his stint as Billy MacGregor the Irish teacher in the American TV Satire Head of the Class The image even now still comes up since he’s just bloody brilliant and so meticulous a perfectionist with a singular wit that could make the staunchest and driest of intellectuals crack up But on the contrary looking at his picture on book flap he looks like he should be riding a Harley than he does a professorWallace even writes about this type of preconceptions we make of people we read or listen to without ever seeing them We make assumptions and deduce that one should look a certain way and when we meet them or see them We realise that you can’t judge a book by its cover even if it has an endearing picture of a lobster raising a claw to be counted As a personal comment the book cover can’t top the cover of A Party of One but its damn closeWallace majored in my favourite subject philosophy focused on mathematics and logic and graduated summa cum laude and detains an MFA in creative writing making him a power house of intellectual writing As an author and when not teaching he also takes assignments for magazines in different ranges of the social strata Playboy Esuire Harper’s Rolling Stone and has written book reviews for papers such as NY Times LA Times and the Washington Post those included in Consider the Lobster are simply watershed events in how one should write a review – which makes me particularly self conscious about even attempting to critiue his book I am but an amateurThe writing style in Lobster is difficult The reader will necessitate the use of a good dictionary or the online Merriam Webster at the very least Even though when considering the core audience when he’s as an example writing a political report Up Simba for Rolling Stone he does take the pedanticism down to an acceptable level Pedanticism is a harsh word perhaps it would fit better to say that he can make certain essays accessible Reading his material is a complicated adventure especially if you consider the final essay Host but never does the reader feel like he’s being talked down to or made to feel like a moron but the aberrant use of rare words can make one feel out of the loopy But his willingness to adapt to his intended reader which in the case of “Up Simba” is the college crowd that reads Rolling Stone is just another indication of his mastery over this languageNot only will the reader grasp the encyclopaedic knowledge of whatever subject Wallace is treating he will also learn patience and perhaps the ancient art of the use of a magnifying glass because the footnotes of smaller font size have their own footnotes of even smaller font size which often are interwoven with interpolations One footnote its sub footnotes and its interpolation took over one and half pages of space This can make reading difficult not because of “wordiness” or of the intellectual challenge it presents but because the font is so small that it can strain the eyes – an experience this reviewer is reminded of the skull cracking migraine ensued by the reading of said footnote during a trip on the subwayBut it was worth the “cephalitic throbbing” because reading Consider the Lobster is enthralling riveting gripping and whole lot synonyms It was efficacious into getting this reviewer to consider reading fiction for once His reviews of books hook line and sink the reader into craving fiction Wallace raves about Kafka and praises and admirers Dostoyevsky and despite warning the reader on the difficulty of reading such authors teases you into wanting itThis must come from his own love of reading he even reviews a sports personality’s biography those soppy from humble beginnings I rose above it all Monday night made for TV movie candidates that bore me to tears Yet he treats it for what it is a mass market soft cover book that only die hard fans of said personality would read he doesn’t review it as he would Kafka This would be like treating a Spiderman comic with the same outlook as one would Shakespeare both are literature but with differing target audiences and differing story telling mechanisms or mediumsWallace is an author for all seasons He can report on porn awards in unsavoury details and then later get very snobbish about American Usage dictionaries defend those poor lobsters and then deride the mainstream media through an essay on conservative talk radio where he berates all of media for having turned into nothing than a for profit business There’s no subject of Americana Wallace can’t write about without enlightening the reader on perhaps unconsidered perspectivesGrab a dictionary grab a can of Red Bull and grab the Lobster This book is worth every delicious word I just hope I didn’t make to many mistakes in my usage; I would abhor having Wallace’s wrath of Snootiness rain down on me pdf ´ And Other Essays À David Foster Wallace
