Thanks to Flavorwire, we found out that the notes and manuscripts from David Foster Wallace's posthumous novel "The Pale King" are now available for research at The University of Texas' Harry Ransom Center.
The book was incomplete at the time of Wallace's death in September 2008, but his editor Michael Pietsch sifted through the materials to find what he referred to as an "astonishingly full novel."
