I clearly remember the first time I read DFW’s cruise essay––I was in bed and began laughing so hard my then partner asked me to either stop reading or remove myself from the bedroom (it was the beginning of the end of that relationship). Such a brilliant man with such a tragic ending.
I loved the Gone Girl cruise story and have fond memories of David Foster Wallace’s essay, so thank you for sharing both. This one is also great, from Caity Weaver: https://www.gawker.com/gravy-boat-my-week-on-the-high-seas-with-paula-deen-an-1522108382
You are gem for linking DFW!
