I started reading the Pale King today. I listened to an interview with the editor who compiled the book from Wallace's notes and they said some parts of it simply hadn't been edited enough, while one of the novel's main themes is boredom some parts are so boring that even the editor thought Wallace just didn't get around to cutting certain parts out. So if a part seems excruciatingly boring you could *probably* just skip it
>>7575380 I think it had an added effect because I had just finished a nine-hour day of editing insurance documents I'd been working on for a week and hopped onto a bus. The bus was crowded full of office workers, the traffic was slow and so of course I whipped out TPK and happened upon that section.
How KAF-KA-ESQUE IF I MAY SAY
