David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest
Stephen Burn's short guide to Infinite Jest, this slim (96-page) volume is broken up into 5 parts:
- The Novelist
- The Novel
- The Novel's Reception
- The Novel's Performance
- Further Reading and Discussion Questions
Although the guide feels incomplete, it provides excellent insight into eschaton, especially in light of "the Armageddon-explosion, the goal metafiction's always been about" (14).
In the appendix, Burns includes a helpful, but seriously incomplete chronology.
