9780241145463: The David Foster Wallace Reader
Críticas:

One of the most dazzling luminaries of contemporary American fiction ( Sunday Times)

There are times, reading his work, when you get halfway through a sentence and gasp involuntarily, and for a second you feel lucky that there was, at least for a time, someone who could make sense like no other of what it is to be a human in our era ( Daily Telegraph)

A prose magician, Mr Wallace was capable of writing . . . about subjects from tennis to politics to lobsters, from the horrors of drug withdrawal to the small terrors of life aboard a luxury cruise ship, with humour and fervour and verve (Michiko Kakutani The New York Times)

A heady reminder of why we got hooked in the first place ( Daily Telegraph)

Descripción Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 233 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Where do you begin with a writer as original and brilliant as David Foster Wallace? Here- with a carefully considered selection from his extraordinary body of work, chosen by a range of fellow writers, critics, and those who worked with him most closely. This volume presents both his funniest and his most heart-breaking work - essays such as his classic cruise-ship piece, A Supposedly Fun Thing I ll Never Do Again , excerpts from his novels The Broom of the System, Infinite Jest, and The Pale King, and legendary stories like The Depressed Person . Collected for the first time are Wallace s first published story, The View from Planet Trillaphon as Seen In Relation to the Bad Thing and a selection of his work as a professor of writing, including reading lists, grammar guides and the unique general guidelines he wrote for his students. A dozen writers and critics, including Hari Kunzru, Anne Fadiman, and Nam Le, add afterwords to favourite pieces, expanding our appreciation of the unique pleasures of Wallace s writing. The result is an astonishing volume that shows the breadth and range of one of the most dazzling luminaries of contemporary American fiction (Sunday Times) whose work was full of humour, insight, and beauty. There are times, reading his work, when you get halfway through a sentence and gasp involuntarily, and for a second you feel lucky that there was, at least for a time, someone who could make sense like no other of what it is to be a human in our era. Daily Telegraph A dense, agonised, brilliant and moving body of work. It seems miraculous, even heroic, that Wallace achieved what he did. Sam Leith, Literary Review A wonderfully exuberant comic writer and ironist, a writer of boundless imaginative gifts. His work will continue to be read long into the future. Jason Cowley, New Statesman A writer of virtuosic talents who can seemingly do anything. Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times He was the closest thing we had to a recording angel. GQ.
