All the hipsters were reading him, so I actually talked my book group into reading one of his early works – Broom of the System — or as I call it “Broom of the Fucking System.” I actually read the whole thing thinking that sooner or later there actually had to be a plot there, or something. Yeah, right.
Talk about letting down the group. Man. They hardly trust me to pick books anymore. Fucking David Foster Wallace. Which is why this made me laugh. Ha! That almost makes up for reading that crappy ass book.

    Ha! Yes, he is a pretentious ass and that book was terrible. Don’t worry, we don’t blame you for that book group pick — I’ve suggested duds myself. (Pattern Recognition, anyone? Talk about over-rated, oy.)
