Ken Erdedy

New daily drawing up at Partyka: Ken Erdedy (Where was the woman who said she'd come.).

"He had never been so anxious for the arrival of a woman he did not want to see."

Erdedy is secretly the key character of infinite jest.


Later on, it turns out that Erdedy once worked at Viney and Veals doing creative for this well connected ad/pr company.

Erdedy was the creator of Johnny Gentle's infinte crooning celebrity.

Erdedy is Karl Rove on a karmic downslide. Most readers of IJ think he's a minor character, but Erdedy's work before is the very reason subsidized time and ONAN and the concavity even exist. Sure the timeline depends on other things like InterLace, who hired Viney & Veals in the first place.

But Erdedy did the key bit - the creative. And he sits waiting for the bob hope, on the downslide, in a mad world that his own fevered mind literally created.

Just Like DFW Himself.
