We can probably all agree to say that this is a long book. But will you also agree with the Newsday reviewer who wrote: "This book teems with so much life and death, so much hilarity and pain, so much gusto in the face of despair that one cheers for the future of our literature"?
Or will you be more likely to nod approvingly at the New York Times Book Reviewer who wrote: "If Mr. Wallace were less talented, you would be inclined to shoot him - or possibly yourself - somewhere right around page 480 of "Infinite Jest". In fact, you might anyway"?
And will you even finish it in time for the discussion? Rest assured, casualties and those who are still crawling to the finish line come Tuesday 25 June will be exceptionally welcome to share their encomiums and/or their disapprobation.
