Pale King the Air Exp (Paperback)

Special Order

Staff Reviews

"David Foster Wallace proves his mastery of his craft in his final
novel by taking one of the most mind numbing and boring jobs and writing
about it in a way that makes it seem mind-blowingly interesting.
This story was at first intimidating to me. I knew there were
multiple narrators and I was having a hard time keeping track of who was
narrating when. It soon occurred to me that I should not focus on the
more formal structure of the traditional novel I was so desperately
seeking out and instead focus on the story itself.
As soon as my focus shifted to the story alone, a wonderful image of a
place and a time started forming in my mind... 
I would suggest that any lover of postmodern literature or
contemporary American authors read this novel right away! It wasn't an
easy read, but they say the best things in life don't come easy, right?" ~Lucas
