Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"Wallace, among his other talents, blends the languages of modern philosophy, sexual angst and suburban psychological breakdown in a way that manages both to be thoroughly new in literary terms, and yet still evoke in the reader that state of mind that all great literature evokes, that sense of encounter with phenomena long familiar and suddenly, perfectly identified."

Vince Passaro, Salon, 05/28/1999

Review:

"[T]his entire volume represents a sharp falling off in ambition, nuance and vision from Wallace's previous works of fiction, books like INFINITE JEST and THE BROOM OF THE SYSTEM. Only one story in this volume--a sad, little elliptical tale titled "Church Not Made With Hands," which depicts a man trying to cope with his daughter's injury in a freak swimming pool accident--evinces the lure and dazzle of his earlier work and hints at the capabilities of this immensely talented writer."

Michiko Kakutani, New York Times, 06/02/1999

Book Description: Little, Brown Company, United States, 2009. CD-Audio. Book Condition: New. Unabridged. 146 x 130 mm. Brand New. In his startling and singular short story collection, David Foster Wallace nudges at the boundaries of fiction with inimitable wit and seductive intelligence. Among the stories are The Depressed Person , a dazzling and blackly humorous portrayal of a woman s mental state; Adult World , which reveals a woman s agonised consideration of her confusing sexual relationship with her husband; and Brief Interviews with Hideous Men , a dark, hilarious series of portraits of men whose fear of women renders them grotesque. Wallace s stories present a world where the bizarre and the banal are interwoven and where hideous men appear in many different guises. Thought-provoking and playful, this collection confirms David Foster Wallace as one of the most imaginative young writers around. Wallace delights in leftfield observation, mining the ironic, the surprising and the illuminating from every situation. His new collection will delight his growing number of fans, and provide a perfect introduction for new readers. Bookseller Inventory # LVN9781600247378
