'A visionary, a craftsman, a comedian ...He can do anything with a
piece of prose, and it is a humbling experience to see him go to
work on what has passed up till now as 'modern fiction'. He's so
modern he's in a different time-space continuum from the rest of
us. Goddamn him' ZADIE SMITH A recognised master of form and a
brilliant recorder of human behaviour, David Foster Wallace has
been hailed as 'the most significant writer of his generation'
(TLS). Each new book confirms and extends his genius, and this new
short story collection is no exception. In the stories that make up
OBLIVION, David Foster Wallace conjoins the rawest, most naked
humanity with the infinite convolutions of self-consciousness - a
combination that is dazzlingly, uniquely his. 'Wallace's talent is
such that you can't help wondering: how good can he get?' TIME OUT
