A Fun Thing: Book Discussion at Hudson Park Library
Called by many the greatest writer of his generation, Wallace can be challenging, especially his 1079 p. novel Infinite Jest. The essays in this book are easier to digest. They are funny and lively and they offer close observations of American life. They are fun to read. Wallace makes footnotes fun to read.
Read the whole book. You'll want to, but we will be discussing just three of the essays: On visiting the Illinois State Fair, on tennis player Michael Joyce, and on taking a luxury Caribbean cruise.
