Do you have a copy of David Foster Wallace's postmodern behemoth on your bookshelf gathering dust? Have you started it (more than once perhaps), only to shake your head in frustration and give up? I've attempted to conquer Infinite Jest several times and each time it has defeated me... and I was an English major. I'm determined to show it who's boss this summer. Let's meet bi-weekly and wade through this mind-twisting, soul-melting ball of craziness.
It's a happy coincidence that just as we're reading Infinite Jest, a movie comes out about an epic interview with David Foster Wallace that occurred at the end of his book tour for Infinite Jest. http://www.siff.net/cinema/end-of-the-tour
Let's get together, watch the movie, and have a drink or dinner after and discuss. The movie opens August 7th at the Egyptian theater. I'd like some feedback on when to schedule this meetup. I was thinking we could do the off-cycle Wednesday in the evening, which would be August 12th, or maybe Sunday August 16th. I'm open to suggestions.
