Until his death in 2008, David Foster Wallace was one of the most prodigiously talented and original young writers in America, and Girl with Curious Hair displays the full range of his gifts. From the eerily real, almost holographic evocations of historical figures like Lyndon Johnson, over-televised 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, and the familiar strange.
