Read full description of the books Algo supuestamente divertido que nunca volveré a hacer:Celebrizado pela sua obra de ficção, David Foster Wallace foi também um excecional ensaísta e repórter. Alguns dos seus artigos mais conhecidos deram-lhe um reconhecimento transversal e captaram o interesse de muitos leitores para este escritor original que estava tão à vontade a falar da ficção pósmoderna norte-americana como a relatar a sua experiência num cruzeiro. Graças ao talento do seu autor, peças como a de Roger Federer, a do Festival da Lagosta do Main ou a da indústria pornográfica norte-americana transcenderam os limites das publicações em que apareceram pela primeira vez e, atualmente, fazem parte dos textos canónicos sem os quais não se pode entender a dimensão do génio de Foster Wallace.
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.
