DFW

David Foster Wallace je po smrti. Jeho knihy (najmä Infinite Jest, že áno) sa na mojom pomyslenom rebríčku kníh, ktoré chcem čítať, posunuli o pár priečok vyššie.

Z jeho Brief Interviews with Hideous Men pripájam poviedku 'A RADICALLY CONDENSED HISTORY OF POSTINDUSTRIAL LIFE':
When they were introduced, he made a witticism, hoping to be liked. She laughed extremely hard, hoping to be liked. Then each drove home alone, staring straight ahead, with the very same twist to their faces.
The man who'd introduced them didn't much like either of them, though he acted as if he did, anxious as he was to preserve good relations at all times. One never knew, after all, now did one now did one now did one.
