free read Brief Interviews with Hideous Men review Brief Interviews with Hideous Men Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB review í eBook or Kindle ePUB Ð David Foster Wallace In his startling and singular new short story collection David Foster Wallace nudges at the boundaries of fiction with inimitable wit and seductive intelligence Venturing inside minds and landscapes that are at once recognisable and utterly strange these stories reaffirm Wallace's reputation as one of his generation's pre eminent talents expanding our ides and pleasures fiction can affordAmong the stories are. Usually when some undergraduate English major brings up DFW to me at a keg party I tend auto file them under douchebag Because let s be honest people Infinite Jest was profoundly not good But everything that s irritating about Wallace s thoroughly self aware postmodern writing style is somehow much stomachable in smaller bites Brief Interviews has its highs and lows the uality is extremely variant between the pieces but when it s on it is ON In fact Brief Interviews holds moments where Wallace is actually transcendant If you re looking to buy or borrow this book take my advice do not read the whole thing First read the interviews They re the clear highlights with the last one being in my opinion one of the best pieces of short fiction written in the last couple of decades If you re feeling it at that point then dive in to the other ones Octet is a particularly strong as is Suicide as a Sort of Present A good percentage of the stories use painfully self aware tricks to challenge the modern concepts of narration character structure etc tricks that are now being replicated unendingly in sopho fiction writing seminars across the world I m sure It s not particularly clever and for the most part detracts from the writing But in the Interviews Wallace manages the dialectic narration style or less beautifully somehow capturing both the worst and best traits of his characters These men are hideous even worse they are hideously realistic and I often found my pity or empathy overwelming my initial stomach churning disgust These portraits are intimate and familiar it s like listening in on a conversation of an ex boyfriend The last interview is off the charts good mostly because it manages to be both grotesue and uite funny This is the DFW that people obsess over tossing around references satirizing modern society soaking dialogue in irony That story alone is worth the price of the book If you end up loving this book power to you DFW has definitely done things to earn his widespread critical acclaim Just don t name drop him to pick up girls at parties because that makes you an asshole
