“In an era of second/foreign language instruction that has seen an almost complete abandonment of the formal teaching of pronunciation, it is very gratifying to happen across a textbook specifically and carefully designed to teach the sound system of Spanish to intermediate and/or advanced university students. Sonidos en contexto is an excellent, time-saving resource for busy Spanish faculty trained in descriptive linguistics to create a turn-key course in Spanish pronunciation. . . . It is not easy to take a subject as dry as an exhaustive study of the sound system of Spanish and make it applicable and interesting to undergraduate students, but this book accomplishes the task beautifully. . . . The conceptual flow of this book is very ordered and logical, starting with the Spanish writing system, then moving on to syllabification and word stress before discussing the basic concepts of phonetics and phonology. . . . Sonidos en contexto offers a thorough and complete descriptive analysis of the Spanish sound system, including transcribed readings, ordinary readings for phonetic transcription, articulatory phonetic description, phonological distributions, and phonology problems. However, what really sets this textbook apart are its wealth of practice activities, strategically placed within the text to allow students to practice the content covered in each chapter. . . . In conclusion, Sonidos en contexto is a very informative and engaging resource for instructors and students interested in the teaching of the Spanish sound system.”—Hispania, Michael Hubert, Washington State University

Breves Entrevistas com Homens Hediondos foi lançado nos EUA em 1999 e reúne 23 contos. Wallace aborda temas que lhe eram íntimos, como dependência de drogas e depressão, e outros pelos quais ele tinha particular interesse, destacando perversões sexuais, desvios de comportamento, relacionamentos afetivos e o poder nocivo da mídia na vida contemporânea. O autor exercita sua verve satírica e o experimentalismo formal combinando referências eruditas e populares – recorre, a exemplo de Infinite Jest, a extensas notas de rodapé. Companhia das Letras, 2005, R$ 62,00, em média.
