Description

‘A writer of virtuostic talents who can seemingly do anything’ New York Times

‘Wallace is a superb comedian of culture . . . his exuberance and intellectual impishness are a delight’ James Wood, Guardian

‘He induces the kind of laughter which, when read in bed with a sleeping partner, wakes said sleeping partner up . . . He’s damn good’ Nicholas Lezard, Guardian

‘One of the best books about addiction and recovery to appear in recent memory’ Sunday Times

Somewhere in the not-so-distant future the residents of Ennet House, a Boston halfway house for recovering addicts, and students at the nearby Enfield Tennis Academy are ensnared in the search for the master copy of Infinite Jest, a movie said to be so dangerously entertaining its viewers become entranced and expire in a state of catatonic bliss . . .
