Worth Reading: The Busy Trap


In the first post in this series, I recommended David Foster Wallace – the man who introduced David Foster Wallace’s work to me is Tim Kreider, who I know through his cutting and brilliant comic career. Of late he has turned his attention to cultural and political commentary and he is, naturally, killing it.

One of my favorites of his work is a piece called The Busy Trap, which if you are a person who works in the United States today, you should read. And, once in a while, read again.
