this so taxing afterlife

Unread post by GBShaw » 06 May 2013, 14:13

A book records:

He is wheezing in evident disbelief in this so taxing afterlife.

I know we can say

in so taxing AN afterlife

but is the original sentence grammatical or is it a typo? It doesn't sound natural to me; could you help me?
