Remarkable, hilarious, and unsettling re-imaginations of reality by “a dynamic writer of extraordinary talent” (New York Times Book Review).
David Foster Wallace was one of America’s most prodigiously talented and original young writers, and Girl with Curious Hair displays the full range of his gifts. From the eerily “real,” almost holographic evocations of historical figures such as Lyndon Johnson and overtelevised game-show hosts and late-night comedians to the title story, in which terminal punk nihilism meets Young Republicanism, Wallace renders the incredible comprehensible, the bizarre normal, the absurd hilarious, the familiar strange.
