Infinite Jest

By David Foster Wallace

With its baroque subplots, zany political satire, morbid, cerebral humor and astonishing range of cultural references, Wallace's brilliant dirigible of a novel is set in an absurd yet uncanny near-future, with a cast of hundreds and close to 400 footnotes. Along the way, it questions essential elements of American culture - our entertainments, our addictions, our relationships, our pleasures, our abilities to define ourselves.
