DFW Reviews

Googling for Vollmann and David Foster Wallace over lunch, I found this pair of reviews. I’m 1/3 of the way done with Vollmann’s You Bright and Risen Angels and am considering rereading Infinite Jest when I finish up. I might give Oblivion another read first. I agree, for what it’s worth, with Green’s assertion that “Good Old Neon” is the best story in the book. I think there are thematic ties between this story and Lynch’s Mulholland Drive pertaining to the instant bridging life and death. Maybe I’ll get into that sometime.
