9780141034027: What is the What

Valentino Achak Deng is just a boy when conflict separates him from his family and forces him to leave his small Sudanese village, joining thousands of other orphans on their long, long walk to Ethiopia, where they find safety - for a time. Truly epic in scope, and told with expansive humanity, deep compassion and unexpected humour, "What is the What" is an eye-opening account of life amid the madness of war and an unforgettable tale of tragedy and triumph.

Review:

'I cannot recall the last time I was this moved by a novel. It is impossible to read this book and not be humbled, enlightened, transformed' Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner 'If there was ever any doubt that Dave Eggers is one of our most important storytellers, What Is the What should put it to rest... [A] strange, beautiful and unforgettable work' San Francisco Chronicle 'A remarkable book: harrowing, witty, wretched, delightful; and always compelling, always surprising' London Review of Books

Review:

'A stirring tale, told with admirable simplicity by a classy writer'.
