It is, however, vintage DFW and hence cannot be rated below 5 stars, even if a couple of essays were so-so. Consider The Essay This is a fine collection of essays.
For practical purposes, everyone knows what an essay or a book review is.
The first extremely explicit essay on an inside look into the Porn industry turned this reviewer off slightly being the prude that I am but from then on it was increasingly easy to figure why so many of my most respected friends have such an intellectual crush on DFW.
I have too now, I guess. Or maybe it is puppy love. Hard to know for sure. IJ is such a bad place to first encounter DFW, he is all infinite there with no restrictions on his interpolative imaginationthe finite essays are so much more fun, accessible and lovable and most importantly, imitable at least in intent, if not in style.
Therein lies the most important reason to fall in love - he is really placing himself at a level that you can aspire towards.
Not too difficult, not too complex, but deliciously complex enough to stretch comprehension and understanding. It is not terribly difficult to fall in love from there. This reviewer acknowledges that there seems to be some, umm, personal stuff getting worked out here; but the stuff is, umm, germane.

But with certain literary narrative writers like me, we want the writing to sound like a brain voice, like the sound of the voice inside of the head, and the brain voice is faster, is absent any breath, and it holds together grammatically rather than sonically.
Not sure if this applies to his fiction as well but, if you happen to miss the footnotes, you would miss half the fun, not to mention half the book. It was a source of constant amazement to observe how DFW uses a review or any given essay to explore every pet topic imaginable.
It was even more amazing to imagine how his editors let him do that.
In illustration of this amazement: Quite a bit longer, actually. Surely, you get the drift In sum, give DFW any topic and he will conjure out of it the angst of the modern condition, link it with some fundamental disconnect and manage to be completely non-pretentious and genuine while doing that.
