Excerpt from Oblivion

Thanks to Ed for reporting on the online excerpt from David Foster Wallace’s forthcoming Oblivion. When I have a moment or three, I hope to actually get around to reading “Philosophy and the Mirror of Nature” and giving it a chance.

Till then, I’ll remain conflicted on whether to buy the book. As I’ve mentioned before, though I’ve consistently enjoyed both of DFW’s novels and most of his nonfiction (unfortunately, I just wasn’t man enough to get through Everything and More), his collections of short stories have left me pretty cold so far.
