Consider the Lobster and Other Essays

Author : Wallace, David Foster

$5.00

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.

Contains: “Big Red Son,” “Certainly the End of Something or Other, One Would Sort of Have to Think,” “Some Remarks on Kafka’s Funniness from Which Probably Not Enough Has Been Removed,” “Authority and American Usage,” “The View from Mrs. Thompson’s,” “How Tracy Austin Broke My Heart,” “Up, Simba,” “Consider the Lobster,” “Joseph Frank’s Dostoevsky” and “Host.
