9780141020044: How We Are Hungry

How We Are Hungry is a collection of Dave Eggers's short stories that twist and inspire the imagination

Dave Eggers has championed the cause of the short story so magnificently that through his own McSweeney's magazine and through its many imitators the form is once again in the ascendant. Yet while celebrating the work of others, Eggers has also proved himself time and again one of the modern masters of the form.

This unmissable collection is Egger's first, and showcases his talents in a variety of stories that are short-short, short-long and every length in between; and in stories that are dark, funny, inspiring, daring and endlessly inventive (including the acclaimed 'Up the Mountain Coming Down Slowly'). In short, in stories that will make you appreciate that Dave Eggers and the short story were made for each other - and, in turn, for you.

'Possibly the most admired and emulated American author of his generation' Independent

'Brilliant, confident floods of language' Sunday Herald

'Intensely pleasurable, striking in its beauty...a triumph of both form and content' Guardian

Review:

"These tales reinvigorate that staid old form, the short story, with a jittery sense of adventure. . . . [Eggers] does things that should be impossible, and he does them gracefully." --"San Francisco Chronicle" "A tour de force. . . . [Eggers'] prose is supple, transparent and surprising." --"The New York Times Book Review""" "The man can simply write extraordinarily well. . . . How We Are Hungry""is a triumph of both form and content. . . . Dave Eggers is the real thing." --"The Guardian "(London) "Beautiful stories, anchored in the real world, with more bodies and objects than concepts or abstractions. There is a sense of human exuberance in the clean, swift language. . . . It looks like a classic." --"The Oregonian" "It's [the] tension between our base and noble impulses, our so-called animal and refined natures, that gives How We Are Hungry""its momentum. . . . Eggers is phenomenally talented--maybe uniquely so." --"The Washington Post" "Full of the
