Unfinished Business

An excellent review in this week's Time Magazine of David Foster Wallace's postumous novel, The Pale King. We haven't read the book yet, but the review adds to our incentive to buy it and take it on.

Wallace died by his own hand in Claremont in September, 2008.

"...this right here is me as a real person, David Wallace, age forty, SS no. 975-04-2012, addressing you from my Form 8829-deductible home office at 725 Indian Hill Blvd., Claremont 91711, CA, on this fifth day of spring 2005, to inform you of the folllowing: All of this is true. This book is really true."
