Consider the Lobster, and Other Essays Lib/E (Compact Disc)
This hilarious books reveals David Foster Wallace as he delves further and further into his search for the original, the curious, or the merely mystifying.
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? 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.
