Inspired by the enthusiastic reception of my “Reimagining Wallace” presentation at last year’s DFW Conference in Bloomington-Normal, I decided to continue my Wallace-inspired LEGO creations. It’s taken me over a year, but I finally finished my Infinite LEGO project, a reimagining of Infinite Jest in LEGO sculptures. Jane L Carman and Lit Fest Press have agreed to publish the work as a picture book due out in December.

Like a Greek Chorus or Statler and Waldorf of The Muppet Show, Marathe and Steeply gaze out at the sunset of Tucson provide a running commentary of the action in Infinite Jest.
I know I skipped over some important scenes. I’ll go back to those.
