I recently purchased the audiobook of "Consider the Lobster" (new) from an outlet bookstore in Arizona for about $3.99.

A major draw for me is it's read by DFW. I'm not certain, but I think this might be the only one of his audiobooks read by the man "Himself".

I recommend it highly. Be warned that the essay "Big Red Son" does concern the adult film industry and is quite explicit. I was especially pleased with "The View from Mrs. Thompson's", pertaining to 9/11, and "How Tracy Austin Broke My Heart," about the former tennis prodigy.

(also: The CtL audiobook doesn't have the complete content of the book.)

I bought a paperback edition of "Consider the Lobster."

But, this audiobook read by DFW sounds like a "must buy." Thanks for this post!

Good to know about Brief Interviews. I'd only heard about the newer edition read by John Krasinski. I'll have to look for that other one.
