Descrição do produto
David Foster Wallace has made an art of taking readers into places no other writer even gets near. 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.

Long-winded but on the spotAvaliado no Reino Unido em 13 de julho de 2021
I'd just given up on a book by Michel Houellebecq when Amazon recommended this which turned out to be the perfect anti-dote: short and long rants of superficially sophisticated men trying to hide their selfishness and misogyny through philosophical babble. The book gets too long-winded at times but the portraits are very recognisable and explained to me why I disliked Houellebecq so much.
Some of DFW's finestAvaliado no Reino Unido em 18 de março de 2017
I rarely laugh aloud but I fell off my chair several times at some of the stories. Many are perfect encapsulations of DFW's style of possibly deliberately self conscious discussion, and I found them to be among the best short stories I've read. Think Borges, but with footnotes and a level of vivid capture of the human mindset that few can approach. Deeply sad at times to, and the lines between the author and the narrator are invariably questioned when the author departed in such tragic circumstances. I highly recommend this to anyone - the vision of particularly the male mindset is still so relevant today.

Stand Up TragedyAvaliado no Reino Unido em 15 de junho de 2013
How does he do it? David Foster Wallace was literary innovator par excellence, but it's not tricksnand traps and attempts to be clever. These devices are just increasingly sophisticated weapons to deliver the truth im ways that will double you over when you flinch and wince each time you recognize the monster. The truth.
