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.

An excellent collection of short stories. Funny engaging and definitely off beat. David Foster Wallace is a genius writer.Some people might find some of the stories offensive but if you can handle them, they are great,

The "OverDrive" software that is required to download this audiobook does NOT play the WMA format that the book is available in.

You only realize this after having to both download and install the OverDrive software on your Mac.

What a pain in the toches.
