I'm still reading, slowly, though I haven't posted here in a while because I'm behind, so even the Daily Discussion contains spoilers for me.

So I don't know if this is old news to everyone else, but I was mentioning the cross-dressing investigator Hugh/Helen Steeply to my boyfriend who hasn't read IJ but is a David Lynch fan and he immediately mentioned David Duchovny's character on Twin Peaks. Namely, cross-dressing DEA investigator Dennis/Denise Bryson. Is this a nod from DFW to DL?

Here's a pic (now I can't help but visualize Helen Steeply looking like this):

I believe Wallace was influenced by Lynch/Twin Peaks and make several connections between IJ and images in Twin Peaks (including the one you noted) in Elegant Complexity. There's a line lifted straight from Miguel Ferrar's character: "Look, it's trying to think." In one report, Avril's hair turns white overnight like Leland's. And several more.

that's rad. important to remember, though, that Denise was a transvestite of volition--not "merely" going undercover.



Ha. Oh DFW, you really WERE a Twin Peaks junkie!
