Description

Do lobsters feel pain? Did Franz Kafka have a funny bone?
What is John Updike's deal, anyway? And what happens
when adult video starlets meet their fans in person? David
Foster Wallace answers these questions and more in essays
that are also enthralling narrative adventures. Whether
covering the three-ring circus of a vicious 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 quality
of thought that is uniquely his and a voice as powerful and
distinct as any in American letters.
