    DescriptionSomewhere in the not-so-distant future the residents of Ennet House, a Boston halfway house for recovering addicts, and students at the nearby Enfield Tennis Academy are ensnared in the search for the master copy of INFINITE JEST, a movie said to be so dangerously entertaining its viewers become entranced and expire in a state of catatonic bliss ...'Wallace's exuberance and intellectual impishness are a delight, and he has deep things to say about the hollowness of contemporary American pleasure ...sentences and whole pages are marvels of cosmic concentration ...Wallace is a superb comedian of culture' James Wood, GUARDIAN

    Review quote
    A writer of virtuostic talents who can seemingly do anything NEW YORK TIMES Wallace is a superb comedian of culture ... his exuberance and intellectual impishness are a delight James Woods, GUARDIAN He induces the kind of laughter which, when read in bed with a sleeping partner, wakes said sleeping partner up ... He's damn good Nicholas Lezard, GUARDIAN One of the best books about addiction and recovery to appear in recent memory. SUNDAY TIMES
