No doubt you've read enough by now about Jonathan Franzen and this year's Great American Novel, Freedom. So, what of next year's Great American Novel: The Pale King, the posthumous, unfinished final work by Franzen's friend, David Foster Wallace, who took his own life in 2008? Due for publication in April 2011, The Pale King is about the "soul-crushing tedium" endured by workers at a tax-return processing centre. Wallace struggled with the work and, Franzen told me at the launch party for Freedom, "If he'd finished it I think he'd be alive today. Boredom is a tough subject to tackle in a novel and, arguably, Dave died of boredom." Franzen hasn't read the full text of his friend's last book, but admits such challenging material is unlikely to enjoy the same commercial success as Freedom. Then again, Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times' lead book reviewer, whom Franzen calls "the stupidest person in New York" has declared herself a fan of Dave's work – so perhaps everyone else will jump on the bandwagon.
