Infinite Summer is a go

posted by Jason Kottke   Jun 21, 2009

Infinite Summer kicks off today and while I’m not the world’s foremost Wallace scholar, I was happy to provide a foreword to get it rolling.

So sure, it’s a lengthy book that’s heavy to carry and impossible to read in bed, but Christ, how many hours of American Idol have you sat through on your uncomfortable POS couch? The entire run of The West Wing was 111 hours and 56 minutes; ER was twice as long, and in the later seasons, twice as painful. I guarantee you that getting through Infinite Jest with a good understanding of what happened will take you a lot less time and energy than you expended getting your Mage to level 60 in World of Warcraft.
