December is the new cruelest month, Mr. Eliot, for Adam Fuller and Lou “Nick” Canelli re-embark on a hero’s journey through the labyrinthine world of Infinite Jest, aka the elaborate unraveling of DFW’s mind. What boon might they return with from this great abyss? Or might they choose to stay in that new world, never to return to this decaying landscape?
How long will they be gone together in their shared dream? What totem will they take to keep their bearings? Or are they yearning to be completely lost?
Life’s a lark anyway,
so come what may,
December 21st is the fateful day.
