This deluxe paperback edition -- featuring flaps, new cover art, and a new foreword by Tom Bissell -- celebrates the 20th anniversary of the original publication of Infinite Jest. 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.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: David Foster WallacePublisher: Back Bay BooksPublished: 02/23/2016ISBN: 9780316306058Pages: 1104Weight: 2.50lbsSize: 9.10h x 5.90w x 2.00d
