I just got The Broom of the System by David Foster Wallace 'cause I picked up House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski and that look'd just too fucking long and disorganized for me to wrap my head around right now. Too many post modern semiotics. Infinite Jest was a fuckin' science fiction novel, anyway. I want to write a paper comparing Dhalgren by S.B. Delany and Infinite Jest by Wallace; both exceedingly long, literary, character driven, complex, circular science fiction tales in the same tradition, written thirty years apart.

I don't like the OSM story on the front page.
This is a message for anyone in CLEVELAND.
Got a great scoop
In other news I went outside and observed a nest of chipmunks while getting bitten by mosquitoes.


I should try Dhalgren again (5.00 / 1) (#1)

I tried it about 11 years ago and it jsut didn't hold my interest (and I'm no stranger to tough pomo lit, Gravcity's Rainbow is one of my favorire, most read books).

I was glad to ahve read Infinte Jest, but I don't think I will read it again, DFW is no Pynchon. Let us know if Broom is any better.
