Book Title
Infinite Jest
David Foster Wallace
A gargantuan, mind-altering comedy about the Pursuit of Happiness in America Set in an addicts' halfway house and a tennis academy, and featuring the most endearingly screwed-up family to come along in recent fiction, Infinite Jest explores essential questions about what entertainment is and why it has come to so dominate our lives; about how our desire for entertainment affects our need to connect with other people; and about what the pleasures we choose say about who we are. Equal parts philosophical quest and screwball comedy, Infinite Jest bends every rule of fiction without sacrificing for a moment its own entertainment value. It is an exuberant, uniquely American exploration of the passions that make us human - and one of those rare books that renew the idea of what a novel can do."The next step in fiction...Edgy, accurate, and darkly witty...Think Beckett, think Pynchon, think Gaddis. Think." --Sven Birkerts, The AtlanticBinding Type: PaperbackAuthor: David Foster WallacePublisher: Back Bay BooksPublished: 11/13/2006ISBN: 9780316066525Pages: 1079Weight: 2.42lbsSize: 9.20h x 6.00w x 1.90dReview Citations: Entertainment Weekly 09/26/2008 pg. 38New York Review of Books 05/12/2011 pg. 8Time 06/22/2009 pg. 107Newsweek 07/20/2009 pg. 65Newsweek 11/29/2010 pg. 50Entertainment Weekly 07/05/2013 pg. 200New York Times Book Review 02/07/2016 pg. 16Entertainment Weekly 03/04/2016 pg. 66
