"Infinite Jest"

I was intrigued by Chuck Klosterman’s essay about Wallace in But What If We’re Wrong?, so I began reading Infinite Jest casually in early 2016, diving in earnestly on Dec 26th, 2018. It took a lot of discipline to finish the 1,079 page novel, but I did, and it inspired a bunch of Patreon tracks, of which I am very proud. I feel like I can read anything now.

You can listen to my interview with Wallace scholar Greg Carlisle here, where I ask him dozens of questions about Wallace’s book’s plot and Carlisle’s fantastic Elegant Complexity, a guide that greatly helped me understand Jest.
