Verso Occidente l'impero dirige il suo corso (Italian by David Foster Wallace

By David Foster Wallace

Questa è los angeles storia di sei personaggi in viaggio verso un luogo dove forse non arriveranno mai; è l. a. storia di una poetessa ambiziosa che compone versi fatti tutti di consonanti, di un Ronald McDonald che si fa le canne, di un grande pubblicitario che spaccia rose fritte, di un gigantesco contadino che fa l’autostop in mezzo ai campi dell’Illinois e di un giovane arciere che possiede una freccia incantata. È il ritratto brillante e desolato di un’epoca in cui convivono opulenza e spossatezza, economie di scala e ossessioni solipsistiche. È una critica serrata alle insidie della cultura mediatica e dell’arte pubblicitaria, e alle degenerazioni della letteratura postmoderna. È un travel de strength linguistico di cui solo il talento di David Foster Wallace poteva essere capace. È un libro visionario, impegnato, surreale, complesso ed esilarante. È un libro come non ne avete mai letti.
