"I get into a cab & say things like 'To the library & step on it.'" Infinite Jest, David Foster Wallace. Pinner writes: "Mind-altering comedy about the pursuit of happiness set in an addicts' halfway house & a tennis academy. Features the most endearingly screwed-up family in recent fiction. Explores essential questions about what entertainment is & why it has come to dominate our lives. Burrows into your mind, forces you to think critically & look at the world in an entirely new way."
