David Foster Wallace Remembered with Infinite Summer Reading Group
For most people, summer reading means page-turning reads from the likes of John Grisham, Dan Brown and anything else that let's you turn your brain off for a while and relax. But for the few, the proud, the vaguely masochistic, summer means more time to delve into the classics that you should've been reading during school while you were too busy staring at the girl in the third row with the ponytail.
That being said, we recommend that anyone wishing to dip their feet into his works before jumping into the deep end with Infinite Jest try out some of his non-fiction first. Overall it's a lot more accessible and many of his essays are just as revolutionary in their own way. And for those who give it a shot: good luck!
