Infinite Jest turns 10

A 10th anniversary edition of David Foster Wallace’s juggernaut of a novel Infinite Jest is being released in November. (Amazon lists the date as November 13). And according to the Howling Fantods, the premiere site for all things DFW, Dave Eggers wrote the forward.

 

In other DFDubs news, John Krasinski, the 26 year-old Newton native who plays Jim on The Office, is making a movie based on Wallace’s short story collection Brief Interviews with Hideous Men (which includes the story “Forever Overhead,” which I read as a 13 year old in the Best American Fiction anthology of 1992; I fell hard for DFW after that). It’s unclear, though, whether the movie will incorporate all the stories, or the four in the collection titled “Brief Interviews with Hideous Men,” interview-format stories in which men reveal their licentious sexual proclivities.
