The Howling Fantods

Yesterday, this book materialized in my mailbox.

I have to admit I've never been a huge fan of David Foster Wallace. In general, as he said about others' writing, I rarely "heard the click" when I read his work, except in two pieces. And these two pieces are something wonderful. Here they are.

The first, "Consider the Lobster," which I actually read in the August 2004 issue of Gourmet when it came out. And I thought, then, what a magnificent piece of writing.

The second, I clicked open quite by accident on The Man Repeller one day.

Enjoy the water (if you can see it). I'll be enjoying Every Love Story Is a Ghost Story. ~A (aka j)
