Read full description of the books:

“Ci sono tre spiegazioni valide per l’ascesa di Federer. La prima ha a che vedere col mistero e la metafisica ed è, a mio avviso, la più vicina alla verità. Le altre sono più tecniche e funzionano meglio come giornalismo”. Per l’edizione di Wimbledon 2006, il “New York Times” invia in Inghilterra un corrispondente d’eccezione, David Foster Wallace. La penna di uno dei più importanti scrittori americani degli ultimi decenni incrocia così la racchetta del giovane campione svizzero Roger Federer, allora sul punto di aggiudicarsi – in una finale da sogno contro lo spagnolo Rafael Nadal – l’ottavo titolo del Grande Slam. Il risultato è un intensissimo saggio narrativo nel quale Wallace, avvalendosi anche di un passato da tennista, riesce a offrirci una brillante analisi del tennis contemporaneo e, soprattutto, la possibilità di partecipare a un’esperienza che ci fa scorgere il legame profondo tra la bellezza e la grazia di un fuoriclasse come Federer e le forze ultime dell’universo.

Read information about the author

Ebook Roger Federer come esperienza religiosa read Online! David Foster Wallace worked surprising turns on nearly everything: novels, journalism, vacation. His life was an information hunt, collecting hows and whys. "I received 500,000 discrete bits of information today," he once said, "of which maybe 25 are important. My job is to make some sense of it." He wanted to write "stuff about what it feels like to live. Instead of being a relief from what it feels like to live." Readers curled up in the nooks and clearings of his style: his comedy, his brilliance, his humaneness.

His life was a map that ends at the wrong destination. Wallace was an A student through high school, he played football, he played tennis, he wrote a philosophy thesis and a novel before he graduated from Amherst, he went to writing school, published the novel, made a city of squalling, bruising, kneecapping editors and writers fall moony-eyed in love with him. He published a thousand-page novel, received the only award you get in the nation for being a genius, wrote essays providing the best feel anywhere of what it means to be alive in the contemporary world, accepted a special chair at California's Pomona College to teach writing, married, published another book and, last month [Sept. 2008], hanged himself at age 46.

Among Wallace's honors were a Whiting Writers Award (1987), a Lannan Literary Award (1996), a Paris Review Aga Khan Prize for Fiction (1997), a National Magazine Award (2001), three O. Henry Awards (1988, 1999, 2002), and a MacArthur Foundation "Genius" Grant.
