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. Rainy Season. Synopsis: A husband and wife come to Willow, Maine and will stay, despite protests from the locals, to become sacrifices during the rainy season. When the “rain” starts, the couple must win the ultimate battle of Man vs. Nature if they have any hope of making it out alive.
