The Millions - Unpublished Scene from The Pale King

While I wait for my paperback copy of The Pale King to arrive from Amazon you can check out one of the previously unpublished scenes over at The Millions:
 
Eagle-eyed readers looking at the cover of the soon-to-be-released paperback edition of David Foster Wallace?s The Pale King may have noticed the words ?With Four Previously Unpublished Scenes.? While we haven?t seen all of the new scenes, from the example below, which we obtained from publisher Little, Brown, it appears that this extra material did not neatly correspond with the finished book but nonetheless may offer some additional context. The scenes will apparently be packaged as part of a ?Reading Guide? in the new edition of the book. The first paragraph below is an explanation provided by the publisher, followed by one of the four new scenes, in full.
