Publisher Comments:
Set in an addicts' halfway house and a tennis academy, and featuring the most endearingly screwed-up family to come along in recent fiction, Infinite Jest explores essential questions about what entertainment is and why it has come to so dominate our lives; about how our desire for entertainment affects our need to connect with other people; and about what the pleasures we choose say about who we are.

Equal parts philosophical quest and screwball comedy, Infinite Jest bends every rule of fiction without sacrificing for a moment its own entertainment value. It is an exuberant, uniquely American exploration of the passions that make us human ? and one of those rare books that renew the idea of what a novel can do.

We'll plan to meet at Clear Conscious Cafe, but if the crowds eek us out (as they did yesterday, our apologies to anyone left behind), head kitty corner across the street to Au Bon Pain, 1100 Mass Ave (cross Prospect St and Mass Ave and look for the yellow awning on Mass Ave).

This is a thick one, so we've got a little more time to get it in:-)
