A Virtual Tour Of David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest


Attention All David Foster Wallace Fans,

Writer William Beutler is compiling real life Boston, MA locations featured in David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest:

“About each I will write some 300–500 words, endeavoring to say something interesting about the role a given location plays in the story, how it appears in the present day, and what it was like to visit. For those who have not read the novel—or not yet finished it—be forewarned: there will be spoilers.”

Beutler is calling the project Infinite Boston.

For those who can’t get enough DFW, you can find past Rumpus coverage here.
