Each one is a stunner, from the grotesquerie of the Adult Video Awards in Big Red Son, the magniloquent ass handing of John Updike, the sublime pedantry of the modern classic Authority and American Usage, the obsessive campaign chronicling of Up, Simba, to the staggeringly researched meta bubbling John Ziegler profile Host All the essays succeed at tying razor sharp exegeses of American culture to a holy clarity of insight, showing how acutely attuned to the nuances of the human mind Mr Wallace was Even among the shorter pieces here the Bergman like silence of The View From Mrs Thompson s to the dazzling dissection of Dostoevsky, this is super stellar belles lettris BREAK ON THROUGH TO THE OTHER SIDENel 1966 i Doors debuttarono con il disco omonimo Un capolavoro Undici canzoni indimenticabili Eterne, semplici e raffinate, banali e rivoluzionarie.
Usavano motivi latini bossanova e soul, ma poi anche Brecht Weil, non usavano il basso, almeno in concerto, e a coronare tutto c era lui, Jim Morrison, insuperabile rettile e crooner.
Fu una rivoluzione Tuttora, il disco fantastico, attualissimo e per tanti versi, ancora anticipatore.
DFW mi ci ha fatto pensare.

Penso che DFW sia stato nella letteratura come Morrison nella musica moderna Contemporanea Rock Pop Per me, musica tout court , e What can I say Another brilliant set of essays.
1 Big Red Son at the AVN Adult Video News Awards An insightful and amusing look at the porn industry For a regular civilian male, hanging out in a hotel suite with porn starlets is a tense and emotionally convolved affair There is, first, the matter of having seen the various intimate activities and anatomical parts of these starlets in videos heretofore and thus weirdly feeling shy about meeting them But there is also a complex erotic tension Because porn films worlds are so sexualized, with everybody seemingly teetering right on the edge of coitus all the time and it taking only the slightest nudge or excuse a stalled elevator, an unlocked door, a cocked eyebrow, a firm handshake to send everyone tumbling This book reminds me why I love DFW The erudition, humility, self consciousness, and truth seeking are all on fine display here, as is the extremely personal nature of his prose He s constantly revealing himself while writing about others, even when such revelations are less than flattering, and is openly unsure about the worthiness of such self revelation, and is also unsure whether this very open unsureness about the worthiness of his self revelation is itself another layer of unworthy self revelation, as in look at and admire me because I reveal all my inner faults Which is another way of saying what he himself says in one of these essays that there s no such thing as true altruism, because even when you re being altruistic or in this case unflatteringly self revelatory , this is itself a way of garnering praise for yourself, thereby undermining the Consider the Lobster was an admirably consistent and frequently entertaining collection of essays by DFW In my opinion, it was actually even stronger than his A Supposedly Fun Thing I ll Never Do Again, which was itself certainly no slouch Thoughts on and ratings for the individual essays can be found below Big Red Son 4.
5 stars This essay on the porn industry was peppered liberally with humorous observations and intelligent insights, but really, that industry is so monumentally absurd, the video titles packed with so many terrible puns, that it s a vaguely nauseating laugh riot in its own right Very funny stuff Certainly the End of Something or Other, One Would Sort of Have to Think 4.
5 stars I haven t read anything by Updike yet, but thanks to this semi acerbic, wholly persuasive review, I surely won t start w A reading inspired by Ian, who is presently traipsing across Portugal whatever, I m not jealous , because, Lord Byron, I presume.
This is my first foray into the works of DFW It s unclear at this time if I ll read this in one sitting or at random, notwithstanding, my intent is to review each essay as a standalone Big Red SonBig Red Son is the first of nine essays What possible contrasts can be drawn between auto castration, the Hollywood film industry with it s less celebrated but lucrative twin, the US adult film industry A hilarious, insightful, birds eye reporting, documenting the vagaries of porn, and those who live in it It s the story no doubt but than this, it s the raconteur Wallace is a master word and world builder
Consider The EssayThis is a fine collection of essays It does not seem to be put together following any particular collective logic, but all the essays seem to be good advertisements to DFW s intuitively imaginative, explorative and curious writing method Would need to read of DFW s essays to be able to comment on the logic of this particular set of essays inhabiting the same book It is, however, vintage DFW and hence cannot be rated below 5 stars, even if a couple of essays were so so InterpolationFor practical purposes, everyone knows what an essay or a book review is As usual, though, there s much to know than most of us care about it s all a matter of what your interests areThe first extremely explicit es I ve long been told by so many to read Infinite Jest, but the problem is, an equal amount of people have said it s not worth the bother For a book so long, I m not ready to take the risk I can t comment on his fiction, but this collection of essays was simply A material I would have given five stars just for the piece on the porn industry The rest too were also mighty fine I don t use tour de force that often when it comes to books, but this was precisely that.
He s been called a postmodern philosopher, and a genius, and also a sublimely funny writer, and that it s easy to see here It s funny ha ha and peculiar funny Consider the Lobster offers an exhilarating short cut to the mind of a writer for whom autocastration is a good reason to investigate adult entertainment , who swears once a year not to ge
