What exactly is New Sincerity and how does it manifest itself in DFW's writing?

Also general DFW thread, I guess
Which is your favourite work of his?
Was he underrated as a journalist?

It's bullshit. Even if people are less sincere these days, there's no need for a 'new' sincerity. It would look exactly like 'old' sincerity, which really didn't go anywhere. It's just a posturing, egotistical hack wanting the prestige of having started a new movement.

But I thought that New Sincerity started well over a decade before DFW was first published, but he was later seen as part of that 'movement' by the critics

What's wrong with a little discussion? Maybe somebody might bring something new to the table

"'My chest bumps like a dryer with shoes in it"

His writing is exaggerated realism in a comic way so its easy to not see past the irony in chapters like Wardine but eventually you start to realize that it wasn't some stoner cracking up while writing jokes and some of the stuff contains genuine heart felt emotion.

This is /lit/, son.

I guess so but I still find him rather unlikable as an author.

I find him very tiresome.
>>
There are literally passages of IJ where he rallies against postmodern irony and calls for a return to sincerity, as well as lambasting those who espouse a false sincerity.

Like would you not just read his magnum opus before asking what the cunt was all about?

No, it's my sex fantasy

so in order to delude himself into thinking his vision wasn't just an imitation of Delillo, he took Delillo's aesthetic of pomo with transcendence/feels and applied it to life at large, pop culture, contemporary times, and tragically his own life. He called it SINCERITY

In the end he packaged a great artist's thought and vision into easily digestible essays, soundbites, and fiction. Window dressing for the unwashed masses
