Infinite Book

Comments (6)

I have my wife back.  Amy has been lost in a tome (1079 pages) called Infinite Jest (by David Foster Wallace) for the past 10 days (about nine days longer than it takes her to read a typical book.)  Our friend Matt Blumberg referred to it recently as “Infinite Book” – that says it all.  By Saturday evening, Amy was reduced to continuously muttering words I didn’t know the definitions of while repeating “David Foster Wallace is a genius” over and over again.  Tonight she wrote up an Infinite Post on the book – if you want to expand your vocabulary, are a reader, philosopher, wordsmith, linguist, grammarian, high school spelling bee champion, or just generally nuts, wander over to her post on the subject: “Infinite Jest: Victory.”  Of course, in the spirit of this book, she has several other posts up already about it including “Infinite Jest: Prolix” (what the hell is a “prolix”?) and “Infinite Jest: Biting Off a Big One.”  Damn – it’s still almost Tuesday.

    Just a word on the book “infinite jest”… best ear for dialogue you will hear for a long time, and the guy writes regularly in mcsweeneys, the leading new york literary journal (good place to find out what his up to!).

    Kind Regards

    “Infinity Book” might also refer literally to DFW’s book on infinity (which thankfully isn’t as large).

    I have another big book for Amy to get lost in — will send to Colorado. It’s 1352 pages long :-) and none of us have been brave enough to tackle it.
