Originally published as "Laughing with Kafka" in the July 1998 issue of Harper's Magazine.
"Authority and American Usage"
A 62-page review of Bryan A. Garner's A Dictionary of Modern American Usage. Wallace appliesGeorge Orwell's "Politics and the English Language" to grammar and the conditions of class and power in millennial American communication. In addition to examining such seemingly technical ideas as descriptive linguistics versus prescriptive grammar, Wallace digresses to discuss the legitimacy of Ebonics as opposed to "white male" standard English. Originally published as "Tense Present: Democracy, English and Wars over Usage" in the April 2001 issue of Harper's Magazine.
"The View from Mrs. Thompson's"
Wallace's account of September 11 attacks as he experienced it in his hometown of Bloomington, Illinois, where he taught English at Illinois State University. To the surprise of many of his readers, Wallace refers to some of his neighbors as fellow church members. Originally published in the October 25, 2001 issue of Rolling Stone.
"How Tracy Austin Broke My Heart"
A scathing review of tennis star Tracy Austin's autobiography, extending into a general critique of the mass-produced ghostwritten sports autobiographies then flooding the market. Originally published in August 30, 1992 issue of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
"Up, Simba"
Wallace writes about John McCain's 2000 presidential campaign, riding the bus called "The Straight Talk Express". The title is what a television news cameraman covering the campaign says before hoisting his camera onto his shoulder. Originally published in the April 2000 issue of Rolling Stone as "The Weasel, Twelve Monkeys And The Shrub", and as an e-book through Random House's iPublish imprint; later republished in the context of the 2008 presidential race as "McCain's Promise". The essay won the 2001 National Magazine Award for Feature Writing.
"Consider the Lobster"
Originally published in the August 2004 issue of Gourmet magazine, this review of the 2003 Maine Lobster Festival generated some controversy among the readers of the culinary magazine. The essay is concerned with the ethics of boilinga creature alive in order to enhance the consumer's pleasure, including a discussion of lobster sensory neurons.
"Joseph Frank's Dostoevsky"
Review of Fyodor Dostoyevsky's biography written by Stanford University professor Joseph Frank. Originally titled "Feodor's Guide" and published in the April 9, 1996 issue of The Village Voice.
A profile of John Ziegler, a Los Angeles-based conservative talk radio show host who is obsessed with the O. J. Simpson murder case. Wallace examines the impact of Clear Channel-type media monopolies and the proliferation of talk radio on the way Americans talk, think, and vote. Instead of his trademark footnotes, the publication featured arrows that connected tangential ideas to each other on the page. The profile was originally published in the April 2005 issue of The Atlantic, where it can be read online; the online version transforms the lines and boxes to hyperlinks, which were likely Wallace's inspiration. The article was a finalist of the 2006 National Magazine Award for Profile Writing ================================================================ ================================================================
