it was amazing

The polar opposite of Infinite Jest... You can read it in half an hour, but this little book feels like it will stay with me much longer than that. The text of Foster's commencement address at Kenyon College in 2005, where he attempted to convey the true value of the education that these young men and women had just received. If only David could have taken some of these words to heart himself, perhaps we'd be looking forward to his next book.
