This my first experience reading David Foster Wallace disabused me of a few prejudices that in retrospect seem shamefully naive one of which being that objects of the American Media Hype Machine are necessarily mediocre I believed that there had to be something vapid or cheap or sensationalist about things or persons that become loci of the intellectual creative next voice of our generation ballyhoo It s tough not to be cynical The whole zeitgeist of our times is cynicism aloofness a disdain of sensitivity bordering on neurosis and I mean a healthy cultured sensitivity one nurtured in restraint and consideration and taste not an emo ish horticulturally cultivated five o clock shadow thick glasses staring pensively over a latte and word document always always in public in sight of the pretty girls sensitivity Fight Clubs Heartbreaking Works of Staggering Geniuses American Psychos if these are the voices of our times let me be an anachronism In my narrow mindedness I lumped DFW in with these other bright young things figuring he was another spoiled product of moneyed media saturated hipper than thou America wielding an a priori standoffishness as crutch and sword It s what I d come to expect of popular entertainment as a whole I don t mean Harry PotterGirl with the X tattoo lit stuff that is immensely popular but actually has redeeming factors and is based in a solid tradition of plot earnest character development involved drama etc but stuff that was supposed to represent the intellectual undercurrents of what it is to be a living mind in America in the early twenty first century you know edgy stuff McSweeney s has some funny t shirts but in the end all the irony can be fucking despairing Contrived coolness ultraviolence representing god knows what involuted sexual obsessions as supposed comment on middle class repression and ennui or some nonsense solipsistic unearned first person memoiric explorations of what am I in this crazy work a day world it keeps on piling up to a vomitous apogee and I find myself saying fuck it and reading Proust or Walser or Pessoa or Flaubert just so I can fucking breath just to feel someone expressing something honest and with an unmanufactured postureEnter DFW I can t comment on Infinite Jest a book for another day when I again have surplus hours to give to a tome hopefully soon but A Supposedly Fun Thing cuts through all of my above complaints like a glowingly hot knife through butter It has come to be the ubiuitous descriptor of Wallace that he was a decent guy and from what I can glean from this collection of essays the shoe fits and is there really a higher compliment but in addition to his essential decency involving empathy kindness a bullshit detector always set on 11 the keenest eye for a telling detail I ve encountered in books of my times it is the way he subsumes the alienating cheapening aspects of our culture into his vast intellect deconstructs them into their vital parts analyzes their components and restructures them into a completely non ironic funny as hell and enlightening statement about what it is to be a human being And my god the humor in this book Never before have I bitten my lip to bleeding so many times attempting to restrain outright bursts of mad laughter reading this in public And it s consistent And underneath the laughter is that certain lattice within modern humor at its best form and I m thinking of like Louis CK here or Mitch Hedberg or Bill Hicks where the laughter is ringing above a potential abyss and that humor and the transformation of creeping despair into something luminous are the only ways of redeeming contemporary things and ideas from utter degradation and fitting them back into the lineage of a culture of thorough humanist examination Calling DFW the last humanist is tempting but then I d be falling into the same traps of cynicism these essays made me believe it is possible to free ourselves fromGood readers go into books looking for an honest uniue interpretation of some facet of genuine experience over the years I have found myself searching farther back into other cultures and other eras very distant from mine for that kind of fulfilling rounded perspective What A Supposedly Fun Thing has shown me is that while it is still an essential component of a dedicated humanist to understand the history of thought and expression especially in the face of the dulling warping aspects of rudderless progress and an increasingly fragmented reality that there are outposts of sincerity of good nature representatives of the decent guys of the creative temperament hard at work chewing on the problems that haunt us me you this very day dealing with the stuff of our every days in terms that elevate them above the every day DFW in this book alone elevated tennis state fairs David Lynch television a week long cruise the athlete to the realm of eternal motif They re just working a lot harder being driven down tougher paths having to fortify their honesty and sensitivity and steel themselves in the face of fragmentation to a greater degree DFW disabused me of the notion that I have to look outside of my own times for some hero of the candid the honest the uniue and I think he would have considered that some sort of successOn a depressing note I understand now that the media hype that at first so turned me off to the David Foster Wallace machine was in a great part due to his suicide Suicide makes everything momentous gives a retrospective ur meaning to all the aspects of a life imposes an immediate posterity on a creative human being s works I can t fathom what it would have been like in 2008 had I known his work but I can sense the immense loss to our times that his passing has meant I mean imagine looking forward to Harper s experiential essays a complete Pale King laughter insights Overly sensitive souls run the risk of being so sensitive that all they feel is pain and the weird and baroue regimen of drugs Wallace was on somehow did not dull this sensitivity this awareness and in some perverse way made him even representative of our times As I said before really insightful humor runs right along an abyss of terror things that uplift keep a dialogue with things that destroy us they inform and expand awareness in the other Somewhere early in the titular essay of this book Wallace goes on one of his famous footnote digressions which also happens to be uite representative of his sense of humor and mode of observation about the despairing phenomenon of The Professional Smile I ll uote it at length the Professional Smile a national pandemic in the service industry You know this smile the strenuous contraction of circumoral fascia wincomplete zygomatic involvement the smile that doesn t uite reach the smiler s eyes and that signifies nothing than a calculated attempt to advance the smiler s own interests by pretending to like the smilee Why do employers and supervisors force professional service people to broadcast the Professional Smile Am I the only consumer in whom high doses of such a smile produce despair Am I the only person who s sure that the growing number of cases in which totally average looking people suddenly open up with automatic weapons in shopping malls and insurance offices and medical complexes and McDonald ses is somehow causally related to the fact that these venues are well known dissemination loci of the Professional SmileWho do they think they are fooling by the Professional SmileAnd yet the Professional Smile s absence now also causes despair Anybody who s ever bought a pack of gum in Manhattan cigar store or asked for something to be stamped FRAGILE at a Chicago post office or tried to obtain a glass of water from a South Boston waitress knows well the soul crushing effect of a service worker s scowl ie the humiliation and resentment of being denied the Professional Smile And the Professional Smile has by now skewed even my resentment at the dreaded Professional Scowl I walk away from the Manhattan tobacconist resenting not the counterman s character or absence of goodwill but his lack of professionalism in denying me the Smile What a fucking mess I m confident David Foster Wallace was never giving us the Professional Smile

Goodness gracious As much as I revere Wallace s fiction his attempt to rescue American culture from the despairing morass of self aware ironical knowingness his nonfiction is in another league The sheer cinematic exuberance the floating eye uality of these pieces is breathtaking and wonderful bringing the reader as deep into each experience as is textually possible and as close to Wallace as we can be on the pageHis fiction has a surgical uality much like JG Ballard or Will Self whose own essay style mirrors Wallace s though proves less compelling than his fiction bound up in high wire intellectual games which only connect when the reader is complicit in the clevernesses at the heart of these stories or serve to undo the story by adding meta layers about fiction writing itself And so metafictional by proxy An example would be the story Incarnations of Burned Children which on a deeper reading is a story about narrative positionPOV not the heartrending events depicted within So despite his work going for direct emotional shocks it is largely trapped in the craniumSo in this essay collection by making the focus tangentially on Wallace himself as filtered through the Illinois State Fair a revolting cruise ship or a tortured TV consumer the work has a deeply personal and directly emotional feel and although not as ambitious as his attempt to depict the grand throbbing alive ness of life as in Infinite Jest the work shines and sings with a reader friendly humour brio and natural warmth as well as the stylish feats of intelligence and logical probity that is his trademark PhewAn essential text for any serious reader of contemporary essays

nieuchwytna a zakres tematów szeroki i zaskakujący Pozornie chaotyczne a jednak precyzyjne teksty które zyskały uznanie na całym świecie zachwycą nie tylko miłośników prozy Wallace’a Autor kultowej powieści Infinite Jest również w e. he picked up a book he read the book it was him all over the best version of himself and the worst what is postmodernism really is it a way to understand the world to define the world to separate yourself from the world when you are actually a part of that world a part of the so called problem you want to put a layer between you and the world you are so much apart from it right an unwilling participant in all of those repulsive patriarchal and terminally corny signs and signifiers things that disgust you it s not fair just because you happen to have the misfortune to be born straight white male and as they say privileged you need the distance the alienation the angst of being someone something anything apart because you know you are different right you just know it you enjoy things and yet you don t enjoy them you enjoy not enjoying them your layer of hipster irony protects you and maybe fulfills you and you will never admit that you self deprecate in your own egotistical way you are the boss of you no one can take that away everything is so corny and full of bullshit surely they must see that and yet there must be truth there if you look for it you tell yourself that you write a book a great book about life and love and living and loving etc you write a book or imagine yourself writing a book it is not this book this book is all about the unimportant things the annoying things the fake shit and all the bullshit does it satisfy you not really so you read a book you feel better let the irony take over it comforts you you are not angry not angry at all you laugh at all that fake shit all the bullshit angry is a hot emotion you don t feel those at least not any you go to a movie set Lost Highway you try to keep an open mind but it is all fake it is all bullshit there are too many assholes in the world and yet the director at the center of it all is not fake he is not bullshit he s not an asshole does he understand something about life that you do not what does he understand what does he know you want to know he is just being himself and you don t understand that or maybe you do it all makes you deeply uncomfortableyou go to a fair you go on a cruise both are depressing but funny the kind of funny that you can only sheepishly admit perhaps you are a part of the problem it is people who look just like you who created this world that you despise you try to enjoy the fair you try to enjoy the cruise you take enjoyment from your lack of enjoyment you write a book a collection of short works at times even a personal narrative that s the phrase right you personally inject yourself into the narrative into this ridiculous world you feel better but not really fuck this life fuck this earth there is only one way to live in this life and that is through the glass of irony a postmodern form of protection the strongest barrier it will protect you just breathe you know you can do it it s not so badmy name is mark i m not white not really only half white does that count as white i don t feel white however that feels i am bisexual no really i veer gay if that it makes it easier to swallow oh and i wasn t born in this country this US of fucking A and hey what s money i ve never had it i ll never get it and who the fuck is David Foster Wallace i dunno he s some dude that everyone jacks off to apparently i have a friend named Benji a golden lad at least in my mind i look at him through the lense of my very first impression forever ingrained he is nothing like DFW once he talked about how he doesn t see race or class or sexuality because he s never had to he was raised by good progressives he was raised to love life nice life he talked about how he wished everyone could be like him not white or straight or a guy or from money or whatever but able to look at things like they were and not let all the bullshit get them down and so just live not assign guilt or blame just to understand or try to and then move on not judge you know it should be easy life should be easy why isn t it i listened to him say these things and i thought i wish i wish i could be that way you are so naive Benji i fucking hate you i fucking love you DFW is the opposite of Benji and yet and yet is the difference merely a uestion of awareness of critical distance i can t imagine being a person like Benji being that blithe now Benji could enjoy a county fair an awful cruise he could enjoy it without irony i think certainly without that underlying feeling of sadness and yep i won t pretend without the condescending irritation at the futility of all these fucking gestures the fake shit and the bullshit the power imbalances the need to make form eual meaning i love Benji but i m not sure i understand him so why do i understand David Foster Wallace he is nothing like me he is like Benji straight white male money not a problem what do i have in common with David Foster Wallace nothing the idea is ludicrous and yet and yet why do i read him and feel like i am reading my own thoughts right there on the page my own thoughts staring back at me
