Infinite Jest| David Foster Wallace?

I am reading "Brief Interviews with Hideous Men" and I am liking it. A lot. Also DFW's commencement speech at Kenyon College was extraordinary. What does XT think of him?

I recently started to read this after seeing End of The Tour and liking it a lot.

This book is really demanding it must be said...in a way he creates a world of his own with a bit of an alternative history/ sci fi angle in it too. I have not gotten far with it but the 100 pages or so I've read have been quite powerful, such as the weed craving scene (which I suspect is largely autobiographical).

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim
