PW - What Do The New Scenes Add?

There's a little summary piece over at Publishers Weekly, What Do The Pale King?s Four New Scenes Add? that covers the new scenes from the paperback release of The Pale King:
 
The question of whether these scenes are worth reading seems beside the point, because you probably already know if 23 pages of unfinished, vagrant David Foster Wallace writing is something you?ll be interested in reading. The scenes, like the rest of The Pale King, primarily function as texts to be examined and parsed. But Wallace fans (and this goes double for the Wallace fans who?ve already read through The Pale King) will enjoy contemplating their spot in the book?s grand design. And, yes, to answer your question: there are moments of wonderful Wallace prose.
