Infinite Jest
Infinite Jest
"Possibly one of the greatest books ever written- drugs, brainwashing, technology, tennis, boy's schools, addiction, politics, giant sand storms, war games played in the snow, and footnotes that go for pages at a time- this sprawling tale is exhausting, thrilling, hilarious, intimidating, thought provoking, disturbing, and unforgettable."

The Things They Carried
The Things They Carried
