David Foster Wallace

David Foster Wallace's Posthumous "The Pale King" Comes to Life At Herbst Theatre

David Foster Wallace is one of the most ambitious and imaginative minds of modern literary times. Gone too soon, he was the kind of writer who you just knew would never go out with a whisper. Well, true to form, he has a posthumous novel coming out, and it's even more highly anticipated than his previous works. To be released on April 15, The Pale King is his story of a crew of entry-level workers and their soul-crushing jobs, which had swollen to 1000 pages and 150 chapters before he died in 2008.
