Summer Goal – Infinite Jest

Years ago, when it first came out, I bought Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace, and then never got around to reading it. Thanks to this site, I now have a goal to accomplish this summer.

It’s not YA lit, but is anyone else going to join?

  1. Mel is brow-beating me to join. And the book *is* on my Fill-in-the-Gaps list…I just might do it. I don’t know. Undecided still.

    I tried to read it back in the summer of ’99. Didn’t get through it. The foot/endnotes were what bogged me down.
    DFW was my college Lit professor and I really ought to give it another go.
    I’m deep in a John Irving right now. Maybe if I slam through that…
    I guess I could try in another 10 years if I don’t get through it again. πŸ˜‰

    Jen and Jenn, I think you should both read it!

    what, and you aren’t going to join?

    I totally am! I just don’t think I should do it by myself. πŸ™‚
