The Awakening of My Interest in Advanced Tax

Proceeds to benefit Granada House.

Originally appearing at the heart of The Pale King, David Foster Wallace’s posthumous semi-novel, this extended monologue brilliantly rambles its way around the circumstances that brought its narrator out of his ‘wastoid’ childhood and into maturity at the IRS. Along the way, he falls under the spell of a fake Jesuit, considers the true meaning of a soap opera station break, and narrowly escapes a gruesome death on the subway.

‘A writer who kept the landscape of American literature in a state of energized flux.’

– John Jeremiah Sullivan, GQ

‘A prose magician.’

– Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

David Foster Wallace was the author of the novels The Pale King, Infinite Jest, and The Broom of the System and the story collections Oblivion, Brief Interviews With Hideous Men, and Girl With Curious Hair. His nonfiction includes the collections Both Flesh and Not, Consider the Lobster, and A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never Do Again and the essays This Is Water and Everything and More.
