bookshelves: essays, humor, nonfiction
Read from July 11 to 24, 2011

The title essay is brilliant, hilarious and disturbing all at the same time. An exploration as to why anyone in their right mind (or under 65) would want to go on an all-inclusive cruise, DFW skewers everyone -- including himself. Just go read it already!

Oh, P.S.: I didn't read all the essays in this book, not because DFW isn't entertaining, but mostly because I can only deal with his neurosis in small doses. I'm sure you'll understand what I mean once you've read the title essay. I will, no doubt, return to read the rest over the coming years. But my rating is primarily for the title essay itself. Just in case you care about this type of thing.
