Growing sentences with David Foster Wallace

March 21, 2009

This is an excellent post by the hardest working blogger Jason Kottke, who just so happens to be a big David Foster Wallace fan, about writing from a book by James Tanner, whose book is ironically entitledĀ Kicking AssĀ Being the Result of One Man’s Fed-upped-ness With ‘How to Write’ Books Not Actually Showing You How to Write, in reference to best-selling author David Foster Wallace’s approach to sentence structure.

The above sentence isn’t even close to what could have been written if I had just followed the directions.
