Girl with Curious Hair by David Foster WallaceRemarkable, hilarious and unsettling re-imaginations of reality by a dynamic writer of extraordinary talent (Jenifer Levin, New York Times Book Review).
Girl with Curious Hair is replete with David Foster Wallaces remarkable and unsettling reimaginations of reality. From the eerily real, almost holographic evocations of historical figures like Lyndon Johnson and overtelevised game-show hosts and late-night comedians to the title story, where terminal punk nihilism meets Young Republicanism, Wallace renders the incredible comprehensible, the bizarre normal, the absurd hilarious, and the familiar strange.
