WALLACE, David Foster
Infinite Jest
Little, Brown & Co, New York, 1996. Thick Octavo (24 cm.), 1,079 pp. Half cloth, periwinkle-blue paper boards, with publisher's imprint blind-stamped on front board and silver, upper-case lettering on spine. First-issue dust jacket with writer, William T. Vollmann's name spelled incorrectly as "Vollman" on rear panel. Unusually tight, square, strong copy of this large, often structurally frail book. Very slight scuffing to bottom edge of text block. "Infinite Jest" is simultaneously David Foster Wallace's magnum opus of his genius and his last kiss-off before his suicide at age forty-six. A novel of frenetic, literary accumulation, it is the brainchild of the most recent modern crisis -- the comic and the complex ambiguity of mankind's endless search for meaning. No need to ponder, Wallace does all the pondering for you. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: The Beautiful American [Jersey City, NJ, U.S.A.]
