The Pale King - David Foster Wallace

| /
David Foster Wallace’s post-humous novel follows a trainee in a tax office in Illinois as he went through a routine so tedious that new employees receive boredom-survival training, got personal with his co-workers, and faced a plot to eliminate the little humanity and dignity the work still has. It’s a novel that grapples with the question of the value of work and society, and ultimately the meaning of life.
