Consider The Lobster and Other Essays



An outstanding book, although in places the footnotes get oppressive. It contains mostly journalism of one kind or another—a scathing review of the Adult Video Awards, a portrait of Middle America in the hours after 9/11, a philosophical inquiry into lobster-eating. My favorite, though, is his profile of Sen. John McCain’s 2000 Presidential campaign. The most boring is a very long and heavily footnoted essay on English usage.
