“When you start repeating yourself, it gets boring for everybody.” Jason Segel built a career out of deploying his sheepish countenance and aw-shucks manner to maximum comic effect. When news first broke that he would be playing David Foster Wallace in “The End of the Tour,” many Wallace fans thought it was a stunt. Wallace, who shot to literary fame for the voluminous 1996 novel #InfiniteJest, and later hanged himself, was known for his hyper-intricate fiction and nonfiction. But in January, the film had its premiere at @sundanceinstitute and the actor’s performance left the packed theater breathless. @chadbatka photographed #JasonSegel at the @boweryhotel in New York. #Sundance

The best way, (IMHO anyway) to read IJ is via an electronic device where the notes are hyperlinked and the dictionary is a click away. ✨

Happy 55th, DFW!

Forever on my "to be read" day 25 #tbr #maddiewalimay
Borrowed from a friend and I've still not got around to actually reading this yet! (Yes I'm a terrible friend!)

If anyone wants to join, a bunch of us will start reading Infinite Jest starting June 1 ending September 18. For more details check the link in my bio and look under "resources" tab. There will be a reading schedule pdf attached and several links as well as the DFW bibliography. My understanding is that there will be a reddit thread, check ins are Monday and Friday (about 60 pages per full week, 30 between check ins). See Ennet House on Twitter. -

I've been putting this off for too long... see you on the other side. #davidfosterwallace #infinitejest #lit #litislit📚🔥
