Read full description of the books:



Quando fu pubblicata per la prima volta negli Stati Uniti, nel 1989, questa raccolta di racconti confermò David Foster Wallace (all'epoca già autore di un inconsueto romanzo, La scopa del sistema) come astro nascente della nuova narrativa americana: uno di quei rari talenti che, come dichiara la scrittrice Zadie Smith, è magistralmente in grado di «unire testa, cuore e viscere» nella sua scrittura. Dagli anni Sessanta di Lyndon Johnson al jazz patinato di Keith Jarrett al talk show dissacratorio di David Letterman, dai quiz televisivi ai ranch dell'Oklahoma, dagli yuppies ai punk, dai giovani matematici di Harvard ai proletari della provincia depressa, nelle sue storie "Wallace descrive e commenta l'intera cultura americana (e soprattutto le nevrosi, le ossessioni, le passioni, il disagio emotivo di tutto l'Occidente contemporaneo) con un'acutezza e un vigore avanguardistico che a distanza di vent'anni mantengono inalterata la potenza di questo libro". Il volume contiene un racconto inedito dal titolo "Brave persone" uscito nel febbraio 2007 sul New Yorker.

Read information about the author

Ebook La ragazza dai capelli strani read Online! David Foster Wallace worked surprising turns on nearly everything: novels, journalism, vacation. His life was an information hunt, collecting hows and whys. "I received 500,000 discrete bits of information today," he once said, "of which maybe 25 are important. My job is to make some sense of it." He wanted to write "stuff about what it feels like to live. Instead of being a relief from what it feels like to live." Readers curled up in the nooks and clearings of his style: his comedy, his brilliance, his humaneness.

His life was a map that ends at the wrong destination. Wallace was an A student through high school, he played football, he played tennis, he wrote a philosophy thesis and a novel before he graduated from Amherst, he went to writing school, published the novel, made a city of squalling, bruising, kneecapping editors and writers fall moony-eyed in love with him. He published a thousand-page novel, received the only award you get in the nation for being a genius, wrote essays providing the best feel anywhere of what it means to be alive in the contemporary world, accepted a special chair at California's Pomona College to teach writing, married, published another book and, last month [Sept. 2008], hanged himself at age 46.

-excerpt from The Lost Years & Last Days of David Foster Wallace by David Lipsky in Rolling Stone Magazine October 30, 2008.

Among Wallace's honors were a Whiting Writers Award (1987), a Lannan Literary Award (1996), a Paris Review Aga Khan Prize for Fiction (1997), a National Magazine Award (2001), three O. Henry Awards (1988, 1999, 2002), and a MacArthur Foundation "Genius" Grant.
