David Foster Wallace, John Jeremiah Sullivan (INT)

String Theory: David Foster Wallace on Tennis

€21,95

An instant classic of American sportswriting the tennis essays of David Foster Wallace, the best mind of his generation (A. O. Scott) and the best tennis-writer of all time ("New York Times")

Gathered for the first time in a deluxe collector's edition, here are David Foster Wallace's legendary writings on tennis, five tour-de-force pieces written with a competitor's insight and a fan's obsessive enthusiasm. Wallace brings his dazzling literary magic to the game he loved as he celebrates the other-worldly genius of Roger Federer; offers a wickedly witty disection of Tracy Austin's memoir; considers the artistry of Michael Joyce, a supremely disciplined athlete on the threshold of fame; resists the crush of commerce at the U.S. Open; and recalls his own career as a "near-great" junior player.

Whiting Award-winning writer John Jeremiah Sullivan provides an introduction.
