Go To Your Room and Think About It
I just finished an article by David Foster Wallace that was on some random list of the ten best American essays written since 1950. It's titled Consider the Lobster and I think it's quite good. He's a fun writer (though I've only ever read an essay or two of his, I admit) and I like the sly transition from covering a random Maine tourist event to metaphysical pondering on questions that we are uncomfortable asking ourselves, and then asking why we're so uncomfortable with them.
