Stephen Burn's short guide to Infinite Jest, this slim (96-page) volume is broken up into 5 parts:

  1. The Novelist
  2. The Novel
  3. The Novel's Reception
  4. The Novel's Performance
  5. 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.
