Publisher's summary

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.

Critic reviews

"Wallace's style is highly personal - some might say eccentric - but his writing is always intelligent, witty, and engaging." ( Library Journal)
"Mr. Wallace's distinctive and infectious style, an acrobatic cart-wheeling between high intellectual discourse and vernacular insouciance, makes him tremendously entertaining to read, whatever his subject." ( The New York Times Book Review)
“these intelligent, funny essays are outstanding.” ( Booklist)
