NOTE: This Book is a Large Print Hardcover Edition.The agents at the IRS Regional Examination Center in Peoria, Illinois, appear ordinary enough to newly arrived trainee David Foster Wallace. But as he immerses himself in a routine so tedious and repetitive that new employees receive boredom-survival training, he learns of the extraordinary variety of personalities drawn to this strange calling. And he has arrived at a moment when forces within the IRS are plotting to eliminate even what little humanity and dignity the work still has.The Pale King remained unfinished at the time of David Foster Wallace's death, but it is a deeply compelling and satisfying novel, hilarious and fearless and as original as anything Wallace ever undertook. It grapples directly with ultimate questions--questions of life's meaning and of the value of work and society--through characters imagined with the interior force and generosity that were Wallace's unique gifts. Along the way it suggests a new idea of heroism and commands infinite respect for one of the most daring writers of our time.

Lucy Kellaway, author of "Martin Lukes: Who Moved My Blackberry?", explores the taboo of the office romance in her astutely observed and wickedly funny work satire "In Office Hours". Stella Bradberry and Bella Chambers work at the same high-achieving, high-end London firm. Bella is a pretty, young single mum, but an assistant to men with half her smarts. Stella, a go-getting, multitasking mother of two, has a seat on the board firmly in her sights. But then these two sharp, intelligent women do something rash: they embark on affair with male colleagues they wouldn't look twice at outside work. Suddenly, both are telling lies to friends, loved ones and workmates. In the grip of passions they cannot, nor wish to, control, they carelessly break all the rules, sabotaging friendships and careers. They've risked their livelihood for love. But ending an affair is always harder than beginning one..."Funny, frank and shrewd, this comic novel is always on the money." ("Independent"). "Whip-smart and blisteringly observant. Funny, truthful and cracking satire." ("Sunday Times"). "Kellaway is very funny and acutely observant about workplace politics - the office here is a hotbed of passion and betrayal." ("The Times"). Management Columnist for the "Financial Times", Lucy Kellaway, lampoons modern corporate culture in her two novels: "Martin Lukes: Who Moved My Blackberry?" and "In Office Hours".
