Remarkable, hilarious and unsettling re-imaginations of reality by "a dynamic writer of extraordinary talent " (Jennifer Levin, New York Times Book Review).

Girl with Curious Hair Summary

Girl with Curious Hair by David Foster Wallace

Girl with Curious Hair is replete with David Foster Wallace's 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, the familiar strange.

Girl with Curious Hair Reviews

"Mr. Wallace brings us, time and again, to hidden, mythic places that are strange yet oddly familiar. He succeeds in restoring grandeur to modern fiction." -- Jennifer Levin - New York Times Book Review
"A collection of stories as varied in length and theme as they are imaginative, and downright bizarre as any collection by one author has a right to be.... Truly funny surreal humor." -- Benedict Cosgrove - San Francisco Chronicle
"These stories say something serious and sincere about the world that the rest of us have to live in." -- Madison Smartt Bell - Washington Post Book World
