Synopsis: Dave Eggers presents his first collection of short stories. The characters are roaming, searching, and often struggling, and revelations do not always arrive on schedule. Precisely crafted and boldly experimental, How We Are Hungry simultaneously embraces and expands the boundaries of the short story.
From the Inside Flap: omments on previously-released stories:
"The Only Meaning of the Oil-Wet Water," originally published in Zoetrope: All Story, was named a finalist for the National Magazine Award for Fiction, and included in the Best American Magazine Writing 2004.
"Up the Mountain Coming Down Slowly" is a masterpiece . . the narration is magisterial, without a false note. It may well be the last great twentieth-century short story. -- The Observer, (London)
"After I Was Thrown in the River and Before I Drowned" is a small tour de force that ratifies [Eggers¹s] ability to write about anything with style and vigor and genuine emotion. --Michiko Kakutani, the New York Times
