On Ask Polly: Why Do Guys Dump Me Like a Hot Potato?

Aaaaaaaahhh, such beautiful advice! As soon as I read the word "flinchy" I had an inkling it was Heather Havrilesky and got excited. Best advice-giver around.

On Inside David Foster Wallace's Private Self-Help Library

I can only assume you're trolling but want to respond nonetheless. He didn't have "barely two books" under his belt. He had two published novels, along with three short-story collections and half a dozen non-fiction books.

Whatever you think of DFW's fiction, if you've actually read even a fraction of his essay writing, I suspect "bloviating" would be the last word you'd use to describe it. Get back under your bridge.

Harrumph.

PS "does not automatically apotheosize one as the Messiah to the literati". Pretentious? *Moi?*
