    On the 15th April 2011, tax day in the United States, over 200 people gathered in the gallery at Foyle's on Charing Cross road to celebrate the life and work of the late David Foster Wallace as well as to launch his posthumous novel, The Pale King.

    Paul Murray kicked things off by reading the opening of the book, Catherine O'Flynn then read from Infinite Jest and finally Michael Pietsch, David's editor, and Bonnie Nadell, his lifelong agent, spoke in conversation with Jonathan Derbyshire, the culture editor at the New Statesman, about David's work, publishing The Pale King and the tragic loss of a great friend and tremendous talent.

    Due to some technical difficulties on the night, the recording is not as pristine as we would have hoped. However, it was such an interesting and incredibly moving occasion, that we wanted to share it in its entirety.
