Product description

Review

A visionary, a craftsman, a comedian ... He's so modern he's in a different time-space continuum from the rest of us. Goddamn him (Zadie Smith)

The heir apparent to Thomas Pynchon (Douglas Kennedy, THE TIMES)

David Foster Wallace comes with a high reputation to live up to, and in these superbly written stories, he does ... there is a strong element of jokiness in these tales, but it is a deadpan, cumulative humour, not satire of the stand aloof, easily mocking variety ... Here he has shown once again that his is a major and entirely distinct talent (SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

With the exception of Don DeLillo, no writer better depicts the crushing effect of the information age on the soul. His strangely dignified characters fight desperately to maintain sovereignty over their inner lives against the onslaught of high technolo (Stephen Amidon, SUNDAY TIMES)

Book Description

* A brand new short story collection from 'the most significant writer of his generation' (TLS)
