It was in 1996 — 20 years ago — that David Foster Wallace published Infinite Jest. It would not surprise me to learn that there are readers out there who started the book back then and are still trying to finish it. As for me, I’m re-reading it for the second time, and having a blast. Here’s footnote 144, on page 1026:
E.g., see Ursula Emrich-Levine (University of California-Irvine), “Watching Grass Grow While Being Hit Repeatedly Over the Head With a Blunt Object: Fragmentation and Stasis in James O. Incandenza’s Widower, Fun with Teeth, Zero Gravity Tea Ceremony, and Pre-Nuptial Agreement of Heaven and Hell,” Art Cartridge Quarterly, vol III nos. 1-3, Year of the Purdue Wonderchicken.
I laugh out loud a lot.
