Abstract: An analysis of excusable versus explainable misogyny in David Foster Wallace’s Brief Interviews with Hideous Men. In presenting men who struggle to transcend postmodern irony and form meaningful relationships with women in their lives, this novel provides a unique insight into the connection between misogyny and male solipsism.
