The first novel by David Foster Wallace, author of the national bestseller Infinite Jest, is vibrantly republished.
The mysterious disappearance of her great-grandmother and 25 other elderly inmates from a nursing home has left Lenore Stonecipher Beadsman emotionally stranded on the edge of the Great Ohio Desert. But that is simply one problem of many for the hapless switchboard operator -- compounded by her ongoing affair with her boss, the impending TV stardom of her talking cockatiel, and similar small catastrophes that threaten to elevate Lenore's search for love and self-determination to new heights of spasmodic weirdness.
