The text of the postcard is

Dear Ellen,

I’m reading Infinite Jest, and I feel a bit like that mouse … and the book is the other guy.

It’s supposed to be brilliant, which is good. But I can tell you concretely it’s 900+ pages and I’m just now at about 200.

Words of encouragement, wisdom, support, etc are all appreciated.


P.S. After this book I will be reading a mindless book about guys with magical powers or something like that.

Why am I doing this?
