D. F. Wallace – Infinite Jest

“We witnessed something only marginally mammalian in there, sir.”

Just another style-appreciation post. The phrase ‘marginally mammalian’ clearly proves that of all the countless English words that DFW has on his command, he is brilliantly able to choose the right ones for each single sentence. What do we have here? We have rhythm, we have freshness, and we have humor. Sad part is that we also lost a genius 3 years ago.
