Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this exuberantly praised book - a collection of seven pieces on subjects ranging from television to tennis, from the Illinois State Fair to the films of David Lynch, from postmodern literary theory to the supposed fun of traveling aboard a Caribbean luxury cruiseliner - David Foster Wallace brings to nonfiction the same curiosity, hilarity, and exhilarating verbal facility that has delighted readers of his fiction, including the bestselling Infinite Jest.

Synopsis:

This collection brings together novelist Wallace's musings on a wide range of topics, from his early days as a nationally ranked tennis player to his trip on a commercial cruiseliner. His observations and analyses expose the faultlines in American culture.

Synopsis:

A collection of essays on a variety of subjects, from tennis players to cruises, from the author of the fictional title "Infinite Jest". "Animated by wonderfully exuberant prose" "New York Times".
