so here's to my favorite book ever. it's called Infinite Jest. i think i've mentioned before. it's by David Foster Wallace. its size is intimidating, but its minutiae is the real gift. how a man could construct something so beautiful i will never understand. this novel toys with you, entices you, loses you, angers you, enlightens you, but most importantly, it engages you. there are so many characters, connections, and lessons in this book that i can't even begin to present an adequate explanation of "what it's about." suffice it to say, you will be a better person for having read this book.
