Long renowned as one of the smartest writers on the loose, David Foster Wallace reveals himself in
Consider the Lobster to be also one of the funniest. In this program, he ranges far and farther in his search for the original, the curious, or the merely mystifying. He discovers the World's Largest Lobster Cooker at the Main Lobster Festival and confronts the inevitable question just beyond the butter-or-cocktail-sauce quandary.
Do lobsters feel pain?
He addresses this and other important cultural questions in four brilliant esasays from his latest collection.
In what is sure to be a much-talked-about exploration of distinctly modern subjects, one of the sharpest minds of our time delves into some of life's most delicious topics.
This collection includes the following essays: "Consider the Lobster", "The View from Mrs. Thompson's", "Big Red Son", and "How Tracy Austin Broke My Heart".
"Novelist Wallace might just be the smartest essayist writing today." (
