|David Foster Wallace|
I've never managed to get through any of the late writer David Foster Wallace's fiction, which I find overwhelming, but I like his essays, which I think are a more manageable dose. If you only read one essay in this collection, make it the title essay, on the supposed fun of taking a Caribbean cruise. Smart, funny, and rife with his trademark copious footnotes, try this book to get your first taste of David Foster Wallace.
