The late David Foster Wallace’s sprawling novel–all 1,092 pages of it–is available today for $1.99 as part of the Kindle Daily Deal. It was first published in 1996, and I remember buying a paperback copy of it at the Tattered Cover Book Store here in Denver. I can remember where it was on display, at the foot of the stairs leading to the second floor of the store. The book is set in Boston, and the footnotes alone are worth the price.
Kindle Chronicles Paris-Norway-Azores correspondent Jean Remple has been reading Infinite Jest for the past couple of months and has raved about it to me in emails.
So if this is one you’ve always thought you wanted to read, today is the day. Enjoy!
