New in store: David Foster Wallace's Everything and More: A Compact History of Infinity

 
From the author who taught me such wonderful words as suppurate and lallating comes a text that no dictionary can help me understand. Everything and More: A Compact History of Infinity is David Foster Wallace's treatise on the history of infinity, and like every topic he tackled, Mr. Wallace's take on the concept infinity is thorough and complex. Though some of the mathematical concepts he explores are too complicated for my arts kid mind, DFW's writing is, as always, enthusiastic and funny. Pick up a copy and read why David Foster Wallace thinks advanced mathematics can be "sexy".
