Girl with Curious Hair by David Foster Wallace

This felt more like DFW's writing experiments more than anything else. Once I got into a story and the style it abruptly ended. I had very little motivation to start the next story; and in the end I just gave up to read something else.

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“I felt after I finished Slaughterhouse-Five that I didn’t have to write at all anymore if I didn’t want to. It was the end of some sort of career. I don’t know why, exactly. I suppose that flowers, when they’re through blooming, have some sort of awareness of some purpose having been served. Flowers didn’t ask to be flowers and I didn’t ask to be me. At the end of Slaughterhouse-Five…I had a shutting-off feeling…that I had done what I was supposed to do and everything was OK .”
Kurt Vonnegut Jr., Conversations with Kurt Vonnegut

Douglas Coupland
“Our conversations are never easy, but as I-we-get older, we are finding that our conversations must bespoken. A need burns inside us to share with others what we are feeling Beyond a certain age, sincerity ceases to feel pornographic. It is as though the coolness that marked out youth is itself a type of retrovirus that can only leave you feeling empty. Full of holes.”
Douglas Coupland, Life After God
