Product description

Review

This collection of ten tales provides ample proof of his virtuosity for the uninitiated... This is not a writer for the squeamish... but his satirical mastery of speech patterns and his eye for the grotesque can astonish. (DAILY TELEGRAPH)

Puncturing the veneer of power lies at the crux of this collection, and attention to detail illuminates the banal. Wallace's control of different voices is superb, given the individual style of each tale. (THE TIMES)

It is his prose that really sets him apart; sometimes eerily banal, at others so densely observed you're scared to blink, and making ordinary situations seem strangely disconnnected from reality. Cleverness and verbosity are additional key ingredients, and the effect is often brilliant. (SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY)

A collection of stories as varied in length and theme as they are imaginative, and as downright bizarre as any collection by one author has a right to be. Truly funny surreal humour. (San Francisco Chronicle)

About the Author

David Foster Wallace is one of the most prodigiously talented young writers in America today and has received numerous awards for his work. He lives in downstate Illinois.
