Read full description of the books Verso Occidente l'Impero dirige il suo corso:Il capo di una grande agenzia pubblicitaria, un clown scontroso che profuma di cannabis, una poetessa postmoderna, un giovane arciere malato di timidezza, un aspirante attore malato di claustrofobia, una bella hostess che forse non è quello che sembra: in viaggio verso il cuore dell’Illinois, dove li aspetta la mitica "Riunione di tutti coloro che hanno mai partecipato a uno spot per McDonald’s".
Regalandoci una storia che alterna con stile impeccabile surrealtà, introspezione e divertimento allo stato puro, Wallace opera una critica spietata e brillante alla società dei consumi e alla letteratura americana degli ultimi trent’anni.
Read information about the authorDavid Foster Wallace worked surprising turns on nearly everything: novels, journalism, vacation. His life was an information hunt, collecting hows and whys. "I received 500,000 discrete bits of information today," he once said, "of which maybe 25 are important. My job is to make some sense of it." He wanted to write "stuff about what it feels like to live. Instead of being a relief from what it feels like to live." Readers curled up in the nooks and clearings of his style: his comedy, his brilliance, his humaneness.
His life was a map that ends at the wrong destination. Wallace was an A student through high school, he played football, he played tennis, he wrote a philosophy thesis and a novel before he graduated from Amherst, he went to writing school, published the novel, made a city of squalling, bruising, kneecapping editors and writers fall moony-eyed in love with him. He published a thousand-page novel, received the only award you get in the nation for being a genius, wrote essays providing the best feel anywhere of what it means to be alive in the contemporary world, accepted a special chair at California's Pomona College to teach writing, married, published another book and, last month [Sept. 2008], hanged himself at age 46.
