The City Of Infinite Life

The City Of Infinite Life

Everything Harper Lewis knows-from her software engineering job to her overly involved parents-is ripped from her when she suddenly awakens in a barren room, in a strange body, with a handsome man calling her someone else's name. The man divulges three things: it's 2123, the life she knew was a simulation, and she's in danger. She doesn't believe him, but she soon finds herself in a city that is nothing like the world she knew. It has pristine glassy streets and skyscrapers that pierce the clouds. People move like automatons, dress identically, and can heal instantaneously. And she's called an ambassador-of what she has no clue-but she's definitely someone important. Harper believes she is trapped in an alternate reality, but how did she get here? Who can she trust? Can she ever get home? And, if not, where does she really belong... THE CITY OF INFINITE LIFE is a fast-paced sci-fi adventure about surviving the unknown and discovering what it means to truly exist.

Infinite Jest

Infinite Jest

A gargantuan, mind-altering comedy about the Pursuit of Happiness in America Set in an addicts' halfway house and a tennis academy, and featuring the most endearingly screwed-up family to come along in recent fiction, Infinite Jest explores essential questions about what entertainment is and why it has come to so dominate our lives; about how our desire for entertainment affects our need to connect with other people; and about what the pleasures we choose say about who we are. Equal parts philosophical quest and screwball comedy, Infinite Jest bends every rule of fiction without sacrificing for a moment its own entertainment value. It is an exuberant, uniquely American exploration of the passions that make us human - and one of those rare books that renew the idea of what a novel can do. "The next step in fiction...Edgy, accurate, and darkly witty...Think Beckett, think Pynchon, think Gaddis. Think." --Sven Birkerts, The Atlantic
