Mark Flanagan on David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest and Infinite Winter

Mark Flanagan is the founder and editor of Run Spot Run, and the instigator behind Infinite Winter, an online book club of hundreds of readers who have banded together to jointly read David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest in celebration of the book’s 20th anniversary.  In this episode of The Compulsive Reader Talks, we discuss Infinite Jest’s timeless and ongoing appeal, what its like to group read it for the second time, the value of slow, attentive reading, about the guides and resources provided at Infinite Winter, about some of the more interesting things that have come out of his group reading, about what he’s looking forward to, and lots more.
