From the Publisher

The agents at the IRS Regional Examination Center in Peoria, Illinois, appear ordinary enough to newly arrived trainee David Foster Wallace. But as he immerses himself in a routine so tedious and repetitive that new employees receive boredom-survival training, he learns of the extraordinary variety of personalities drawn to this strange calling. And he has arrived at a moment when forces within the IRS are plotting to eliminate even what little humanity and dignity the work still has.

The Pale King remained unfinished at the time of David Foster Wallace''s death, but it is a deeply compelling and satisfying novel, hilarious and fearless and as original as anything Wallace ever undertook. It grapples directly with ultimate questions--questions of life''s meaning and of the value of work and society--through characters imagined with the interior force and generosity that were Wallace''s unique gifts. Along the way it suggests a new idea of heroism and commands infinite respect for one of the most daring writers of our time.

Seller Comments:

Size: 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall; Little, Brown Hardcover with Jacket Fine/Very Good. Black boards silver titled on spine. Solid, square, corners sharp, clean and unmarked. Internals clean, clear and unmarked. Jacket white black lettered with illustration of the King of clubs and snippets of computer printing. Some ruffling at spine ends. There is residue of what looks like an anti-theft device on cover verso (sticky covering it now as it is sticky itself). An unfinished novel left by Wallace when he committed suicide in 2008. After Wallace's suicide on September 12, 2008, a manuscript and associated computer files were found by his widow, Karen Green, and his agent, Bonnie Nadell. That material was compiled by his friend and editor Michael Pietsch into the form that was eventually published. Wallace had been working on the novel for over a decade. Hard to know exactly what the book is about other than boredom and ennui with life, work, people. Little, Brown and Company, New York. 2001 Third Printing. 6.25" x 9.5" tall; x, 548pp. with Notes and Asides.
