    These ten stories bear witness to David Foster Wallace's remarkable and unsettling reimaginations of reality. From the eerily 'real,' almost holographic evocations of historical figures like Lyndon Johnson and overtelevised game-show hosts and late-night comedians to the title story, where terminal punk nihilism meets Young Republicanism, Wallace renders the incredible comprehensible, the bizarre normal, the absurd hilarious, and the familiar strange. 373p.

    Set in an addicts' halfway house and a tennis academy, and featuring one of the most endearingly dysfunctional families in contemporary fiction, 'Infinite Jets' explores essential questions about what entertainment is and why it has come to 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. While it reads equal parts philosophical quest and screwball comedy, in the novel, every rule of fiction comes under pressure to invent something beyond the merely new, big, and adventuresome. With 388 footnotes. 1,079p.

    A gargantuan, mind-altering comedy about the Pursuit of Happiness in America set in an addicts' 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.

    The agents at the IRS Regional Examination Center in Peoria, Illinois, appear ordinary to newly arrived trainee David Foster Wallace. But as he immerses himself in a routine so tedious and reptitive that new employees receive boredom-survival training, Wallace learns of the extraordinary variety of personalities drawn to this strange calling. And he has arrived at a moment when forces within the IRS are plotting to eliminate what little humanity and dignity the work still has. Imagined with the interior force and generosity that were David Foster Wallace's unique gifts, The Pale King grapples directly with ultimate questions-life's meaning, the value of work, the importance of connection-and commands infinite respect for one of the most daring writers of our time. With four previously unpublished scenes.
