What a terrible book. Can't see how it gets a rating of 3.76?. If it wasn't for the last story I would have given it less half a star. ( )

A thoroughly disturbing collection of short stories. A dive into the point-of-view of troubled mostly dangerous people. Some stories are not that and the ones that are not in the interview form are, in places, too few, and those are quite good. In sentences within the interview-stories are portions and that are illuminating and beautifully written. Mostly, for this reader, an unsatisfying read. Other writers who explore messy troubled even dangerous people do not dive and dig and inhabit the dangerous messy thoughts and internal/external dialogue that Wallace takes lengths to inhabit. The writing is good. Good enough to pull a resistant and unwilling reader along through a unpleasant reading experience. I was not wild about this book at all. I would never reread it. Having read it - and actually highlighted a few portions - I would not recommend. Especially now in 2021 the entire project of this collection seems entirely not-worthwhile. ( )

My favorite DFW fiction so far, though that only includes IJ and Girl With Curious Hair. This collection has a much better balance between stories I just want to read, and stories I only want to write criticism about, and (best of all) stories that make me want to do both. GWCH had too many criticism-only pieces. IJ... I mean, the more I think about it, the more I think it's a tragic failure. Nothing wrong with that.

That said, there are some truly awful pieces here. I approve of experimentation, strongly approve, but sometimes experiments fail, and even if you can get them accepted by a journal, you shouldn't publish them in books. You'll know which ones they are. They can be skipped entirely.

One that you shouldn't skip, failed though it is, is 'Octet.' DFW tries to write a piece comprising eight pieces, fails, and then writes a kind of essay-fiction about why he failed and what he wanted to do. It's interesting and moving, unlike the fiction it's describing, and it's nice to see the author just say what he wishes his work would do. Compare 'Adult World,' which comes in halves: the first is okay. The second is a set of notes and drafts for how the story could have been completed. That's not interesting.

The showpieces, of course, are the brief (and sometimes not brief) interviews, and you can't imagine a better, more pitiless skewering of men. God, we are horrible, horrible creatures, and the interviews make it clear that fixing our horribleness is going to be very, very difficult. ( )

Like most books with collections of stories, these are very uneven in terms of quality. The title stories are quite good, and I would also recommend the movie. ( )

The fifty-six-year-old American poet, a Nobel Laureate, a poet known in American literary circles as "the poet's poet" or sometimes simply "the Poet," lay outside on the deck, bare-chested, moderately overweight, in a partially reclined deck chair, in the sun, reading, half supine, moderately but not severely overweight, winner of two National Book Awards, a National Book Critics Circle Award, a Lamont Prize, two grants from the National Endowment for the Ars, a Prix de Rome, a Lannan Foundation Fellowship, a MacDowell Medal, and a Mildred and Harold Strauss Living Award from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters, a president emeritus of PEN, a poet two separate American generations have hailed as the voice of their generation, now fifty-sex, lying in an unwet XL Speedo-brand swimsuit in an incrementally reclinable canvas deck chair on the tile deck beside the home's pool, a poet who was among the first ten Americans to receive a "Genius Grant" from the prestigious John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, one of only three American recipients of the Nobel Prize for Literature now loving, 5'8", 181 lbs., brown/brown, hairline unevenly recessed because of the inconsistent acceptance/rejection of various Hair Augmentation Systems--brand transplants, he say, or lay -- or perhaps most accurately just 'reclined' -- in a black Speedo swimsuit by the home's kidney-shaped pool, on the pool's tile deck...
