David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest
A Reader's Guide
David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest: A Reader's Guide was the first book to be published on the novel and is a key reference for those who wish to explore further. Infinite Jest has become an exemplar for difficulty in contemporary Fiction—its 1,079 pages full of verbal invention, oblique narration, and a scattered, nonlinear, chronology. In this comprehensively revised second edition, Burn maps Wallace’s influence on contemporary American fiction, outlines Wallace’s poetics, and provides a full-length study of the novel, drawing out the most important themes and ideas, before surveying Wallace’s post-Infinite Jest output, including The Pale King.
