Rusty’s Reading List 2014 | April 22, 2014

Oblivion_Stories_book_cover

I really enjoyed Infinite Jest but had never read anything else by David Foster Wallace. I picked this up remaindered or something.

Wow.

This is a short story collection that is equal parts brilliant and really, really messed up. I enjoyed the layered writing but the lack of pay-off in virtually any story took a lot getting used to.

Reading a story written from the point of view of someone who had committed suicide, in a book written by someone who later DID commit suicide, was pretty eerie.
