Details

In this exuberantly acclaimed collection he combines hilarity and an escalating disquiet in stories that astonish, entertain, and expand our ideas of the pleasures that fiction can afford. "A supersonic delight, a full-scale harassment of the short story form.... David Foster Wallace is one badass fiction writer." -Benjamin Weissman, LA Weekly "At just about the time this reviewer was putting on a black suit to attend the funeral of American fiction, David Foster Wallace showed up.... Wallace, like Nabokov, the writer whom he most resembles, has a seemingly inexhaustible bag of literary tricks." -Andrei Codrescu, Chicago Tribune "A prodigiously inventive, hugely funny writer whose best work challenges and reinvents the art of fiction." -Greg Johnson, Atlanta Journal-Constitution "In his eccentric obsessions and his sinister experiments, Wallace is beginning to resemble another mad scientist of American literature: Edgar Allan Poe. And his hideous men, like Poeís, are vexed by demons that haunt us all." -Adam Goodheart, New York Times Book Review "A blistering series of satires on the intellectual vacuity and self-serving character of the contemporary culture of therapy." -Greg Burkman, Seattle Times "Wallace can make you laugh out loud with his devilish wit." -George Gurley, Kansas City Star
