BATON ROUGE – D. Larry Crumbley, KPMG Peat Marwick Endowed Professor in the LSU E. J. Ourso College of Business, was quoted recently in the New York Times article “David Foster Wallach and the Literary Tax Accountant.”

The article, which focuses on deceased author David Foster Wallace and his posthumously published I.R.S.-based novel The Pale King, features Crumbley as another writer who has tried to make tax work seem exciting.

“All of my novels have massive plots, and I kill a lot of people,” Crumbley was quoted as saying. “If I teach a tax principle and it involves someone getting shot, people will remember it.”

 The article, which was published April 14, 2011, can be read in full here.
