The Infinite Future

An exhilarating, original novel, set in Brazil, Idaho, and outer space, about an obsessive librarian, a down-at-heel author, and a disgraced historian who go on the hunt for a mystical, life-changing book–and find it.

The Infinite Future is a mindbending novel that melds two page-turning tales in one. In the first, we meet three broken people, joined by an obsession with a forgotten Brazilian science-fiction author named Salgado-MacKenzie. There’s Danny, a writer who’s been scammed by a shady literary award committee; Sergio, journalist turned sub-librarian in São Paulo; and Harriet, an excommunicated Mormon historian in Salt Lake City, who years ago corresponded with the reclusive Brazilian writer. The motley trio sets off to discover his identity, and whether his fabled masterpiece–never published–actually exists. Did his inquiries into the true nature of the universe yield something so enormous that his mind was blown for good?

In the second half, Wirkus gives us the lost masterpiece itself–the actual text of The Infinite Future, Salgado-MacKenzie’s wonderfully weird magnum opus. The two stories merge in surprising and profound ways. Part science-fiction, part academic satire, and part book-lover’s quest, this wholly original novel captures the heady way that stories inform and mirror our lives.

    this is how danny laszlo described his experience after reading the extremely elusive, finally found the infinite future (the fictitious science fiction novel for which this actual book,
    the infinite future
    , is about). this was more or less my sentiment with the total experience of both the actual novel and holy grail of an assumed magnum opus.

    within its near 400 pages, the first half is a book about searching for a book. the second half is the book in question (or a piece of what we were led to believe), which in itself is a story within a story. anyone thinking twilight zone? it’s not quite that; rather, it’s in the neighborhood of that kind of netherworld.

    the main force which drives this title is the dialogue. not much is learned about the characters themselves outside of the pursuit of this sci fi title, written by eduard salgado-mackenzie (the jd salinger of sci-fi if salinger was considerably less admired, accomplished, adroit). the action doesn’t veer far from car trips and warehouse searches, so it’s dialogue that dominates. truth be told, this is probably what i enjoyed most about the title – the thrill of the chase – this time it will pan out. imagine a world before wide internet usage. y’ve heard a small handful of guns n’ roses chinese democracy cds are floating around. cut to many miles, many red herrings later, boom, you got one! yes! then you listened to it… kind of like that. the “magnum opus” wore down my attention at times, though i must say, toward the end my heart and nerve endings were actually affected a bit. mr. wirkus has experience in the mormon community; to what extent, i honestly cannot say. i feel that his experiences have been less than stellar, certainly at least on occasion, because this is either entirely, or at the very least, significantly allegorical on the religion, specifically the book of mormon. one character, dr. harriet kimball has been excommunicated, so a small (overall, rather small) portion of the text is a diatribe to her treatment. the work the infinite future inside this novel probably has a lot of parallels that one who knows how to look for it will find. if i’m turning you off to the title, i must say that even with these brushstrokes it’s not off-putting because it reads like any story, i just know if one chooses to analyse they will have fun doing it, much like those in search of an extremely elusive sci-fi title.

    When a semiotic meta-novel-within-novel begins with two Mormons on mission in Brazil, you know a unique reading experience is all but guaranteed. But when the telling of the tale brings to mind Paul LaFarge’s The Night Ocean or The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick, well, the fun just got multiplied. Wirkus doesn’t want to provide an underlying sense of terror as LaFarge did with his backstory of H.P. Lovecraft – instead, The Infinite Future is a joyful tour de force about a quest for an elusive scienc

    Sure, Wirkus has a few serious points to make along the way, regarding reform within the Mormon Church, and the tendency of humans to blindly follow leaders, but the lectures rarely get in the way of effective tale-spinning. In the same way that LaFarge works in decades of post-Lovecraft fandom in his novel, Wirkus builds a 60-year legend around Eduard Salgado-Mackenzie that carries us from 1950s pre-coup Brazil, up through the present era. And the legends involve everyone from dadaist and impressionist art movements to the CIA. Nice environment for such a slippery identity in the science-fiction scene.

    If there’s an Achilles Heel that takes this novel down to a weak four stars, it’s that the legend of the unpublished novel (reprinted in part as the last one-third of this book), as well as the legend of space hero Irena Sertourian herself, somehow fail to live up to billing. In some sense, this should be no surprise – the perpetrators of literary fraud who are the late-arriving protagonists in this book warn that the efforts to create a religious aura around Sertourian always fell flat. But does this mean that Wirkus is trying to gently parody L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology, Dick and his bizarre exegesis, or the Mormon Church itself? That’s not really clear, but The Infinite Future book-within-book doesn’t give us a good sense of why Sertourian should be sanctified, why Salgado-Mackenzie gained such a rabid fan-base, or whether we’re just stuck with a Douglas Adams-style search for the meaning of life.

    But what the heck. The vague conclusion, and the many ways it could be interpreted, does not make the book a misfire. The Infinite Future remains a good source of fun, even if the ridiculous outweighs the profound.
