Dave Eggers

A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius

€ 15.95

'Heartbreaking? Certainly. Staggering? Yes, I'd say so. And if genius is capturing the universal in a fresh and memorable way, call it that too' - Anthony Quinn, "Sunday Times". 'Is this how all orphans would speak - "I am at once pitiful and monstrous, I know" - if they had Dave Eggers's prodigious linguistic gifts? For he does write wonderfully, and this is an extremely impressive debut' - John Banville, "Irish Times". 'A virtuosic piece of writing, a big, daring, manic-depressive stew of a book that noisily announces the debut of a talented - yes, staggeringly talented - new writer' - Michiko Kakutani, "New York Times". 'Exhilarating...Profoundly moving, occasionally angry and often hilarious..."A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" is, finally, a finite book of jest, which is why it succeeds so brilliantly' - "New York Times Book Review".'What is really shocking and exciting is the book's sheer rage. "AHWOSG" is truly ferocious, like any work of genius. Eggers - self-reliant, transcendent, expansive - is Emerson's ideal Young American. [The book] does itself justice: it is a settling of accounts. And it is almost too good to be believed' - "London Review of Books". 'A hilarious book...In it, literary gamesmanship and self-consciousness are trained on life's most unendurable experience, used to examine a memory too scorching to stare at, as one views an eclipse by projecting sunlight onto paper through a pinhole' - "Time". 'Eggers evokes the terrible beauty of youth like a young Bob Dylan, frothing with furious anger...He takes us close, shows us as much as he can bear...His book is a comic and moving witness that transcends and transgresses formal boundaries' - "Washington Post".
