Only had to look up two or three vocab words Awarded the fifth star to encourage the writer to one day finish it properly for now this collection of 540 bound pages of DFW's writing whether it's an unfinished novel linked collection of stories fragments dialogues whatever you call it like a massive Snickers bar offered to all those famished for Mr Wallace's particular sort of caloric content really satisfied on micro and macro levels Not really an office novel More like a longer Brief Interviews with Hideous Men than a shorter Infinite Jest A seuencing job by the editor seems like controlled pomo chaos instead of old fashioned mess Conflicts and thematic dealios are explicated by the author in the final notes and aside
