Over 1300 pages long and including more than 300 endnotes, David Foster Wallace's 1996 novel is an eerily prescient vision of the future of entertainment and digital culture.

What a stone classic! For all of the err, critical baggage, and endless back and forth that DFW's legacy continues to inspire, the novel stands strong on its own - incredibly funny, painful, touching, mind-boggling, and just outright fun. Don't let the girth scare you - the book is a blast. And for anyone confused by the "ending," here's a helpful link:
