Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Girl with Curious Hair is replete with David Foster Wallace's Remarkable and unsettling reimaginations of reality. From the eerily real, almost holographic evocations of historical figures like Lyndon Johnson and overtelevised game-show hosts and late-night comedians to the title story, where terminal punk nihilism meets Young Republicanism, Wallace renders the incredible comprehensible, the bizarre normal, the absurd hilarious, the familiar strange.

Synopsis:

In these stories, the author renders the bizarre normal and the absurd hilarious, from the eerily "real", almost holographic evocations of historical figures, to overtelevised game-show hosts and late-night comedians. In the title story, punk nihilism meets Young Republicanism.

Synopsis:

Electrifying collection of short stories from the author of "Infinite Jest".

I prefer Wallace's short stories to his longer fiction, and this is probably my favorite collection of his work. Check out "Lyndon," "Little Expressionless Animals," and "Everything Is Green."
