Emily Hoffman lives in Bloomington, Indiana (aka the other Bloomington, to Wallace fans.) She is a teacher and a student, of toddlers and English literature respectively. In her free time, she enjoys reading Wallace, writing about Wallace, and encouraging (badgering) others to read Wallace. She hopes this read-through of Infinite Jest will comfort her in these disturbing times. Her favorite character in IJ is the inimitable Joelle Van Dyne.
