Not sure if anybody is still reading this blog; but if you are, you’ll know that we (well: Doug and I) talked a fair bit thereupon about David Foster Wallace and his big novel Infinite Jest. And now I talk a little more, to draw your attention to this cool-looking Infinite Jest summer 09 reading group. Check out the website:
The Challenge: Read Infinite Jest over the summer of 2009.
You’ve been meaning to do it for over a decade. Now join endurance bibliophiles from around the web as we tackle and comment upon David Foster Wallace’s masterwork, June 21st to September 22nd. A thousand pages1 ÷ 93 days = 75 pages a week. No sweat.
Return to this site on June 1st for full details. In the meanwhile, buy or borrow a copy of the novel, follow us on Twitter (#infsum), join the Facebook group, and clear your literary schedule for the foreseeable future.
