Infinite Summer Revisited

In 2009 some folks made a lovely website dedicated to reading David Foster Wallace’s magnum opus Infinite Jest. Infinite Summer broke down the beastly 1000+ page novel over parts of four months. The website also featured links to glossaries, guides, and essays on the novel. I’ve decided to revisit Infinite Summer and tackle it myself (along with some friends.) I’m inviting everyone to join in with me. The book can be purchased on Amazon for just under $14 in paperback or $10 for kindle. I’ve revised their schedule to start on June 1st and ending on September 1st. I’ll be blogging some about it here, but also tweeting about it as well. My twitter handle is @kaityballgame. Shoot me a tweet if you decide to join in.

To get started, read over this guide on How to Read Infinite Jest from the aforementioned Infinite Summer. I’ll be posting a list of various websites I find helpful over time.

It will be a big task but I’m excited to get started.

Revised calendar:
