No, this isn’t about Game of Thrones, or the probable economic outcomes of the budget. I’ve been meaning to read Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace for a while now. So inspired by the Infinite Summer project in the US blogosphere a few years back I plan to read it over winter, trying to average at least 75 pages/week, and I’ll blog thoughts, quotes and critiques as I go. I’ll start in a week or two so if anyone else wants to join me on my epic journey through ~1000 pages of dense post-modern prose then you have a grace period to buy or borrow a copy of your own.
A somewhat forbidding review of Infinite Jest can be found here.
