This now-legendary novel has become one of the most sought-after of recent years, particularly since the author's death. Extremely long and self-referential, it nevertheless fully repays the attention needed to enjoy it. Wallace succeeds in creating a very funny picture of the modern world, with the ingenuities of youth as its driving force. 1,079 pp.
