on a very capable but apparently not especially intelligent tennis player named Michael Joyce from LA. about the sacrifice professional athletes have to make for their craft. really sad, and veering on mean-spirited tbh. DFW has said that he regrets the tone and liberties he took with this one, especially since he got to know Michael Joyce pretty well. 1995.
