Girl With Curious Hair: Stories by David Foster Wallace


Hardcover with dust jacket in very good condition.

Dust jacket shows general shelf wear, and three sealed edge tears on back; now housed in a protective mylar jacket.  Price in tact on front panel.

Book itself is excellent; night tight binding and very clean boards; minor rubbing to title on spine.  Pages read as new.  

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.  - Bookshop Apocalypse
