Project Description:
Sam Potts has diagrammed the personal relationships among the myriad of characters in David Foster Wallace's epic novel, Infinite Jest. Nodes are characters and connections indicate some degree of personal relation. A dashed line indicates familial relationships. Sam notes that any effort to add additional data rendered the diagram overwhelming and difficult to read; therefore it acts as a faithful reproduction of the complex social networks of Infinite Jest and illustrates the pleasures of the "seemingly endless details" in his novel.
