Our poet of the hyper-distracted age, David Foster Wallace, died way too young, but he left the world with the brilliant beginnings of a final novel, The Pale King. First excerpted in the New Yorker, this is a story about a man with perhaps the least interesting job known to humanity—an IRS tax-return agent—who struggles to live in bliss and contentment within the dark void of excruciating boredom.
