Your Intrepid Bloggers

During the Gravity’s Rainbow group read, you’ll be hearing with some regularity from three bloggers, all probably familiar voices if you’ve been following since the original Infinite Summer program a few years ago. Others may (or may not) peek in from time to time. The core cast will run as follows:

JEFF ANDERSON is a writer and copy editor; he’s also a quilter, an incessant reader, a sometime musical ambassador to Cuba, and a member of that very exclusive elite: the 150 Jeopardy! contestants who lost to Ken Jennings. He’s excited to once again join the shambling horde of Zombies for a big tough book. He lives in Los Angeles with his husband.

CHRISTINE HARKIN is an editor, writer, branding consultant, and former English professor who has avoided Gravity’s Rainbow long enough. She can’t promise to be insightful or erudite during this group blog, but she’s grateful for the opportunity to move her literary ramblings off the sidelines of (where she spent Infinite Jest and 2666) to a classy joint like Infinite Zombies.

DARYL L.L. HOUSTON signed on to blog Infinite Jest for the original installment of Infinite Summer and had so much fun doing it that he decided to stick around and blog Dracula and 2666 as well. He later kicked off a group read one of his all-time favorites, Moby Dick, and went on to subject IZ followers to his frequent confusion about and frustration with Ulysses. He has worked as a pig farmer, roller coaster driver, and copy editor and now pulls levers and knobs as a computer programmer in Knoxville, Tenn.

Paul Debraski has also faithfully blogged about all the Infinite Summer line of books, sometimes here and sometimes at his own site, where he’ll be writing his not-to-be-missed impressions of Gravity’s Rainbow.

    Jeff and Christine…hi. I was talking with Daryl about writing an IZ post about the allusions to Ulysses in the opening scene. He told me to go for it but I didn’t want to step on any toes if you’re working that angle at all.

      Hey, Paul! Glad to hear you may be playing along again. As for Ulysses in the opening scene, that is…definitely not what I was thinking of. (Christine, I think maybe we’re all in over our heads. This’ll be fun!) I’m excited to see what you come up with!
