Philosophy and the Mirror of Nature

David Foster Wallace, one of my very favorite authors, gives us this story in his newest collection Oblivion. I desperately want to read this book but will have to wait for the library to get it (I think I’ll call tomorrow and ask them to) or for it to come out in paperback. I found the link at the blog of one Maud Newton, which I happened across when doing a search on DFW.

While we’re on Wallace, check out this article about a piece he did for Gourmet about the Maine Lobster Festival in which he apparently stood up for the ethical treatment of lobsters in pretty typical verbose fashion.
