Back on the shelf

I finished Infinite Jest last night, a week ahead of schedule, several weeks behind Canelli.  There’s still an overall ambivalence, but, ultimately, I have a whole new appreciation of the book now.  There’s more of it I understand, and with that understanding comes respect.  It means more to me now.

My recommendation for the folks at home: read it, then, five years later, read it again.  Or don’t read it a second time.  Or even a first time.  Whatever, man.  Do your thing.
