I haven't read this one, as I understand it contains major spoilers for Infinite Jest. Can you confirm or deny?

I can verify that The Rolling Stone article ("The Lost Years & Last Days of David Foster Wallace", http://www.rollingstone.com/news/story/ ... er_wallace) does not contain spoilers, BTW.

The article spoils the final line of Infinite Jest, and then it draws false conclusions based on that line.

So avoid it until you're done.
