Set in an addict's halfway house and a tennis academy, and featuring the most endearingly screwed-up family to come along in recent fiction, INFINITE JEST explores essential questions about what entertainment is and why it has come to so dominate our lives; about how our desire for entertainment affects our need to connect with other people; and about what the pleasures we choose say about who we are.

Equal parts philosophical quest and screwball comedy, INFINITE JEST bends every rule of fiction without sacrificing for a moment its own entertainment value. It is an exuberant, uniquely American exploration of the passions that make us human - and one of those rare books that renew the idea of what a novel can do.

'A work of genius ... grandly ambitious, wickedly comic, a wild, surprisingly readable tour de force.' -SEATTLE TIMES
