By David Foster Wallace,Iannis Goerlandt,Leen Van Den Broucke

ISBN-13: 9789029087674

David Foster Wallace weet lezers moeiteloos mee te voeren naar plekken waar geen enkele andere schrijver ook maar in de buurt komt, zo ook in Korte gesprekken met afgrijselijke mannen. Deze uitbundig geprezen reeks verhalen is een opeenvolging van ingebeelde vraaggesprekken met mannen over hun relaties met vrouwen.

Wallace stelt onderwerpen als vervreemding en onconventionele seks met zwarte, droge humor in een nieuw daglicht. Hij toont mannen verstrikt in zelfrechtvaardiging, spraakzaam maar onwetend. Op schrijnende en hilarische wijze worden de kwellingen van hun seksuele relaties blootgelegd, waarbij duidelijk wordt hoe mannen echt denken over vrouwen.

De verhalen spreken zo tot de verbeelding dat er meerdere toneelbewerkingen van het boek zijn gemaakt, en het werd bovendien succesvol verfilmd.

De pers over Korte gesprekken met afgrijselijke mannen:

‘Het beste, meest toegankelijke boek van David Foster Wallace. Er is geen boek in de recente wereldliteratuur dat zo nauwgezet de wanhoop tot uitdrukking brengt van datende mannen op zoek naar een lief, en naar een consequent en waardevol leven.’ De Standaard

‘Hilarisch en zeer indrukwekkend.’ New York Observer

‘Net als Nabokov, de auteur met wie hij het meest gemeen heeft, beschikt Wallace over een onuitputtelijk arsenaal aan literaire spitsvondigheden.’ Chicago Tribune

‘Een zinderende satire op de intellectuele leegte en de egoïstische aard van de hedendaagse therapiecultuur.’ Seattle Times
