      I think I had kind of a mid life crisis at twenty, which probably doesn t augur real well for my longevity So what I did, I went back home for a term, planning to play solitaire and stare out the window, whatever you do in a crisis And all of a sudden I found myself writing fiction It was 1986 and he was 24 years old when it was published He began writing it fresh out of a fairly tumultuous mental health crisis at age 22 or as he put it a young 22 while simultaneously writing a highly technical [...]

      PORTRAIT OF AN INFINITE JESTER AS A YOUNG MANYou will see it A dream dreamt and a dream realized With this book, my small journey is complete in a way and I witnessed in a small way what went in the making of Infinite Jest Let me draw the conclusion in broad brushstrokes The Broom of the System Girl with Curious Hair is NOT equal to Infinite Jest but a jest that was beginning to take shape in a mind, which in my eyes was capable of achieving anything What David wanted to do was crack A Joke He d [...]

      Are Words the Totality of Thoughts Fighting Wittengenstein with attempted BrevityThe first thing that may strike a reader of DFW s debut is his commitment to excessive detail I imagine that his intention, among other things, was to illustrate the idea that words circumscribe our ability to conceptualize thus, the mental imaging that is conjured up by his descriptions are malleable due to the author s choice of certain word inclusion and exclusion In a humorous bit, he describes in gross detail t [...]

      A very enjoyable book, which is lighter in tone than Infinite Jest but still very complex I finished this over a week ago, while travelling up to Scotland for a walking trip on Skye, and it is no longer fresh in the memory since I have read other things since As in Infinite Jest, Wallace has created a fictional landscape of considerable complexity an Ohio governor who decides to create a desert the Great Ohio Desert, so like O.N.A.N a silly acronym as a tourist attraction, a bird whose ability t [...]

      This book flat out demands a multi layered meta review I mean, it has everything a po mosexual could ask for characters aware they might be characters in a novel, nested short stories read by the characters that comment on the parent text, an intentionally unresolved and fractured plot, pages and pages of ironic philosophical dialogue, and an ending that justUnfortunately, that level of post modern detachment requires real talent, the talent of, say, David Foster Wallace Yet DFW famously critici [...]

      It was the tree frog story The story about the Thermos woman who is always in profile, hiding under scarves and out of the way of all human connections It was the tree frog that lived in the hole in her neck, and he through holes in the scarves around her neck The tree frog that she nurtured and resented Symbiotic amphibiotics That was a part of her and yet not apart of her This whole other not self thing that kept herself out of everything else And the tree frog can only blink sadly, and I gues [...]

      I could very theoretically start listing the shelves where this touches upon, but I d rather just say that this is a first novel most cocaine heads listening to the middle days of heavy metal would want to write if they were hopelessly in love with with the craziest roughage post modern deconstructionists willing to push all narratives into wonderfully feathered roughage prose that s absurd mixed wth frame within frame within frame roughage stories that are linked so very vividly with one anoth [...]

      Lord Wallace of Amherst s debut novel is pardon the obvious an enormo homage to the postmodernist ladies I was surprised at the sheer Gaddisness of this one narratorless dialogue, two interlocutors per section, frequently deployed throughout and not so surprised at the Delilloian weirdness and Barthian frametalemaking The structure seems intricate and impressive, although the plot is mostly linear each alphabetical sub chapter responds to events close to those in previous alphabetical sub chapte [...]

      I am angry at myself for finishing this book It was a total waste of time The only reason I did finish it was because the author introduced multiple story lines that had NOTHING to do with each other, and I was intrigued to see how Wallace would tie it all together Which he did not do At all Lets see, I ll have my extremely boring main character s grandmother escape from a nursing home, then completely ignore that point while I have her and her boyfriend lay in bed and tell random short stories [...]

      I sure wasted a lot of time in college is all I can say All in all, not a bad PoMo novel from a undergraduate senior thesis Some ideas didn t seem to be finished, or put away, but that also seems to be a familiar theme in DFW s work Not my favorite DFW, but I d still prefer most days to read mediocre DFW to good great anyone else.

    11. Davis on said:

      David Foster Wallace was once quoted as saying The Broom Of The System seems like it was written by a very smart 14 year old I respectfully disagree with the always self degrading and self conscious author Rest In Peace In fact, due the relative success of this novel, and his inability to utilize it properly, Wallace had a mental breakdown The circumstances around this book, both before and after, are incredibly interesting, and regretfully, there is a whole lot of space here to talk about them [...]

    12. Chantal Bacherini on said:

      Non sono sicura di ci che ho letto e posso dire solo una cosa con certezza non ho mai letto qualcosa di simile Non penso che al mondo esista un altro scrittore come lo stato David Foster Wallace, non credo di aver mai letto descrizioni tanto particolari DFW riesce a descrivere quelle sensazioni che non pensavo potessero essere messe per iscritto, riesce a descrivere alla perfezione cose che noi percepiamo solamente, cose sussurrate Che dire, dunque, di Lenore, dei capelli di Lenore Sono capelli [...]

      Part 1Judith Prietht Once I sounded it out I hated her so much DFW s humor is something I haven t found anywhere else its weirdness, the build up to the jokes, and the LOLZ The therapist scenes were the hardest I ve laughed at a book since the Eschaton debacle Another thing DFW brings to the table is his descriptive writing which immediately embeds me into the scene,The hair hangs in bangs, and the sides curve down past Lenore s cheeks and nearly meet in points below her chin, like the brittle j [...]

      I ve pained and obsessed over the recognition of genius in others for a long time now and finally feel like I ve made some progress in my own thoughts this is the most I will ever have to say about a book I read only a third of before giving up This, this, a story told to me with all the confidence of a young man so filled with self belief and enthusiasm for a tale that he might well explain the entire plot of a film he enjoyed to me after I had just answered Yes, I did see it 1 To those of you [...]

      The best part of the book, and by telling you this, I am not really giving anything away, at least nothing that is pertinent to the plot of the book, is that there is a man made black sand desert in Ohio, near Caldwell, Ohio, the Great Ohio Desert, where people go wandering, hiking, hiding, resolving existential crises, sunbathing and fishing in the desert s lake It is a blasted region Something to remind us of what we hewed out of A place without malls It is often crowded and the best time to g [...]

      This is a hard nut to crack I decided long ago I needed to read old David Foster Wallace, and I wasn t feeling committed to the 1100 page chore of Infinite Jest As far as I can tell, he draws on three American literary traditions the first is the American hysterical realist tradition that it helped to found see DeLillo, Franzen , the second being the batshit tradition beloved by smart 18 year olds see Vonnegut, Robbins , and the third being Thomas Pynchon, who is his own wonderful, babbling crea [...]

      Brevi appunti sparsi 1 Questo un genio.2 Se cercate un libro con una trama lineare, un inizio e una fine, esposto chiaramente, con uno stile sempre uguale, canonico e mai stravagante, senza voli incomprensibili e filosofici o presunti tali fermatevi qui e cambiate libro.3 Scrivere a 24 anni un romanzo del genere significa o che hai un immaginazione oltre ogni limite, o che sei completamente folle o che sei perennemente fatto Propendo per un misto dei tre.4 Si fa fatica a staccarsi dalla lettura, [...]

      Praticamente questo libro la parola nella sua immensa variet Parola che pu farsi racconto, romanzo, nonsense, parabola, metafora, suggestione, gioco, analisi, invenzione, descrizione, silenzio, menzogna, imitazione Francamente, non ci ho capito granch e dubito che lo rilegger mai, ma, per questa volta, non mi spiaciuto averlo fatto E magari non c proprio niente da capire, a parte il fatto che sconfiggere il caos, generato anche verbalmente, impossibile.

    23. George on said:

      DFW did for me again I love his work I was worried that I would not enjoy this as much as I did Infinite Jest and Pale King, but I loved it It was laugh out loud funny Many great characters orbiting one, Lenore Beadsman.

      Allora Parce sepulto, diceva quello E io lo parco il sepulto, eccome se lo parco La prima volta che ho sentito parlare di David Foster Wallace stata quando morto Prima, mai E per qualche giorno mi era sembrato che non averlo letto dai, non hai letto Infinite Jest E neanche La scopa del sistema fosse una terribile colpa da espiare al pi presto Insomma, devo confessare che ero un po preoccupato questo signore americano qua, un mezzo genio mezzo drogato mezzo alcolizzato mezzo depresso mezzo matto, [...]

      This book is a complete treasure for fans of David Foster Wallace Here, in the honors thesis he wrote as an undergraduate student, we bear witness to the beginning stages of the thematic content entertainment consumerism meaning raw, gooey sentimentality and literary style philosophical, clever, post modern that would ultimately evolve into his masterpiece, Infinite Jest.Inspired by Wittgenstein, The Broom of the System is in the simplest terms about language, meaning and identity The book s you [...]

    26. Nicole on said:

      Okay, so I went into this with weirdly low expectations too many reviews saying it s immature, or not as good as the real DFW, the later DFW, but I think I just got tricked by the whole DFW cult thing that so annoys me, even though the books themselves delight me.Anyway, this book was, granted, neither as long nor as difficult as Infinite Jest, but it was still a joy to read There was the writing, which is beautiful, and also the material, which I guess I expected to be missing or immature, but [...]

    27. Rob on said:

      this was published 10 years before Infinite Jest much like in IJ, every single character in this novel is broken, defective, missing some vital piece one is missing a leg, one is missing a penis, many lack morality, or empathy, or confidence, or even any self identity but in infinite jest, you end up really liking a bunch of them their defects make them lovable, or you love their good qualities in spite of their defects but in this novel, i sort of grew to despise all but one i pinned all my hop [...]

      Io sono il signore io tuo Non avrai altro io all infuori di me altamente probabile che quanto segue sia falso, non ho trovato molte analogie nella rete mondiale e non credo che Wallace abbia scritto per farsi capire solo da me, preferisco correre il rischio di scrivere emerite puttanate, ma ho solo queste.Un giorno di molti anni fa, in una lezione d Organizzazione Aziendale ci furono mostrati alcuni grafici di esperienza performance stipendio e carriera, cio le medie attese di sviluppo personale [...]
