David Foster Wallace*.
I finally finished this mammoth book. For awhile there I thought I'd be reading it forever. I started it when we first got back so it has been 6 months, which is a record for me. I can finish a book in one or two nights if possessed.
I feared for awhile I wouldn't make it, or that I would suffocate under it, or drop it on my head, as I kept falling asleep after reading half a page and returning the next night confused. The irony is that now I have finished it, I want to read it again to find out what the hell happened.
*That is a link to a heartbreaking story.
