From the Publisher

In this exuberantly praised book - a collection of seven pieces on subjects ranging from television to tennis, from the Illinois State Fair to the films of David Lynch, from postmodern literary theory to the supposed fun of traveling aboard a Caribbean luxury cruiseliner - David Foster Wallace brings to nonfiction the same curiosity, hilarity, and exhilarating verbal facility that has delighted readers of his fiction, including the bestselling Infinite Jest.

Seller Comments:

Humor. US: Back Bay Books. Paperback. Excellent. Editorial Reviews Review David F oster Wallace made quite a splash in 1996 with his massive novel, Infinite Jest. Now he's back with a collection of essays entitled A Supposedly Fun T hing I'll Never Do Again. In addition to a razor-sharp writing style, Walla ce has a mercurial mind that lights on many subjects. His seven essays trav el from a state fair in Illinois to a cruise ship in the Caribbean, explor e how television affects literature and what makes film auteur David Lynch tick, and deconstruct deconstructionism and find the intersection between tornadoes and tennis. These eclectic interests are enhanced by an eye (and nose) for detail: "I have seen sucrose beaches and water a very bright blu e. I have seen an all-red leisure suit with flared lapels. I have smelled w hat suntan lotion smells like spread over 21, 000 pounds of hot flesh..." It's evident that Wallace revels in both the life of the mind and the pecu liarities of his fellows; in A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again he celebrates both. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. From Publish ers Weekly Like the tennis champs who fascinate him, novelist Wallace (Infi nite Jest; The Broom of the System) makes what he does look effortless and yet inspired. His instinct for the colloquial puts his masters Pynchon and DeLillo to shame, and the humane sobriety that he brings to his subjects-fi ctional or factual-should serve as a model to anyone writing cultural comme nt, whether it takes the form of stories or of essays like these. Readers o f Wallace's fiction will take special interest in this collection: critics.
