Infinite Jest (First edition signed)

Boston: Little, Brown & Co., 1996. First edition. Near Fine with some publisher's glue to spine ends and verso of front endpaper. Small bumps to top edges of boards. In a Fine jacket that is bright, unmarked, and pleasing. Inscribed by the author on the title page: "To John with Best Wishes, David Foster Wallace."

"Infinite Jest is more or less evenly split between the story of the Incandenza family, dysfunctional proprietors of a tennis academy, and that of the residents of a halfway house for addicts, separated from their luckier counterparts by 'a tall and more or less denuded hill.' One houses America's winners; the other, its losers. The two groups rarely interact, and the sections of the book dedicated to them differ in tone: the first is more comic, the second more realist, even heart-string-pulling. The unique feel of the novel comes from this juxtaposition...but what may be most special about it is its experimental quality. Infinite Jest is a novel about the narcotic power of language" (The New Yorker).
Near Fine in Fine dust jacket. (Item #3235)
