There are a few good stories here and a few stinkers. I don't think I will ever understand the appeal some have for David Foster Wallace's writing. I found myself utterly confused by the second paragraph. Maybe it's a stylistic thing with him, but I found his writing to be a mishmash of words strung together with no coherent flow, very confounding. Chuck Hogan's story on the other hand flowed straight on through to the end.
