I just deleted the last twenty-one comments. There seems to be no way to reverse that. Sorry.

From “Mr. Squishy”:

“Awad, whose knowledge of small craft operation came entirely from a manual he was now using as a paddle…” (60).

I hope to write some more extended reflections on some of Wallace’s fiction in the near future. One thing I have in mind is an interpretation of the above-quoted story. His humor might be underappreciated.
