Read full description of the books:

De werknemers bij het Regionale Controlecentrum van de IRS in Peoria, Illinois, komen in eerste instantie redelijk normaal over op de kersverse tijdelijke kracht David Wallace. Maar terwijl hij zich onderdompelt in een routine die zo geestdodend en repetitief is dat nieuwe collega's geselecteerd worden op hun talent verveling te doorstaan, komt hij erachter welke bijzondere waaier aan persoonlijkheden zich tot dit vreemde instituut aangetrokken voelt. En hij blijkt binnengekomen te zijn op een moment dat de directie van de IRS plannen maakt om ook het laatste beetje menselijke waardigheid dat het werk te bieden heeft, te elimineren.De bleke koning was nog niet voltooid toen David Foster Wallace overleed. Het is een intense, hilarische en onverschrokken roman, en net zo origineel als alles wat Wallace daarvoor schreef. Het boek snijdt grote vragen aan, onder meer over de zin van het leven en de waarde van werk en gezin, en dat door middel van krachtig neergezette, doorleefde personages. De bleke koning is een boek dat in alle opzichten grote bewondering afdwingt.

Read information about the author

Ebook De bleke koning read Online! David Foster Wallace worked surprising turns on nearly everything: novels, journalism, vacation. His life was an information hunt, collecting hows and whys. "I received 500,000 discrete bits of information today," he once said, "of which maybe 25 are important. My job is to make some sense of it." He wanted to write "stuff about what it feels like to live. Instead of being a relief from what it feels like to live." Readers curled up in the nooks and clearings of his style: his comedy, his brilliance, his humaneness.

His life was a map that ends at the wrong destination. Wallace was an A student through high school, he played football, he played tennis, he wrote a philosophy thesis and a novel before he graduated from Amherst, he went to writing school, published the novel, made a city of squalling, bruising, kneecapping editors and writers fall moony-eyed in love with him. He published a thousand-page novel, received the only award you get in the nation for being a genius, wrote essays providing the best feel anywhere of what it means to be alive in the contemporary world, accepted a special chair at California's Pomona College to teach writing, married, published another book and, last month [Sept. 2008], hanged himself at age 46.

Among Wallace's honors were a Whiting Writers Award (1987), a Lannan Literary Award (1996), a Paris Review Aga Khan Prize for Fiction (1997), a National Magazine Award (2001), three O. Henry Awards (1988, 1999, 2002), and a MacArthur Foundation "Genius" Grant.
