American Lit Club: David Foster Wallace, Part 2

We’re headed for the high seas this week with the late, great genius David Foster Wallace! In ‘Shipping Out’ (1996), his brilliant, hilarious, challenging essay, Wallace gives us a granular, inside take on the purported pleasures of a Seven-Night Caribbean Cruise. It would be impossible to overstate Wallace’s immense influence on modern American literature. And this was the essay that put him on the map. 

The essay is here (we’ll be reading part two this week, starting on p.39).

Remember to bring your passport or driver's license.
