9780141013459: You Shall Know Our Velocity

You Shall Know Our Velocity is a compelling and thought-provoking novel by award-winning Dave Eggers. Will and Hand are burdened by $38,000 and the memory of their friend Jack. Taking a week out of their lives, they decide to travel around the world to give the money away. They can't really say why they're doing it, just that it needs to be done. Perhaps it's something to do with Jack's death - perhaps they'll find the reason later. But as their plans are frustrated, twisted and altered at every step and the natives prove far from grateful to their benefactors, Will and Hand find that the world is an infinitely bigger, more surreal and exhilarating place than they ever realised. In fact, it's somewhere to get lost in..."Dave Eggers has become J. D. Salinger, Ken Kesey and Jack Kerouac rolled into one". (The Times). "Endearing, funny ...the prose is high on energy and Eggers' talents make it worth the trip". (Guardian). Award-winning author Dave Eggers is the editor and founder of American literary journal McSweeney's and the founder of 826 Valencia, a non-profit literacy centre for disadvantaged young people in San Francisco. He is the author of several novels, collections of short stories and non-fiction works, including his first novel A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, What is the What (winner of the Prix Medici and finalist of the 2006 National Book Critics Circle Award), Zeitoun, The Wild Things (a novel adapted from the illustrated book Where the Wild Thing Are by Maurice Sendak), How We Are Hungry, You Shall Know Our Velocity and, most recently, A Hologram for the King.

From the Back Cover:

“Headlong, heartsick and footsore....Frisbee sentences that sail, spin, hover, circle and come back to the reader like gifts of gravity and grace....Nobody writes better than Dave Eggers about young men who aspire to be, at the same time, authentic and sincere.” -- The New York Times Book Review

" You Shall Know Our Velocity! is the work of a wildly talented writer... Like Kerouac's book, Eggers's could inspire a generation as much as it documents it." -- LA Weekly

"There's an echolet of James Joyce there and something of Saul Bellow's Chinatown bounce, but we're carried into the narrative by a fluidity of line that is Eggers's own." -- Entertainment Weekly

"Eggers is a wonderful writer, bold and inventive, with the technique of a magic realist." -- Salon

"An entertaining and profoundly original tale." -- San Francisco Chronicle

“Eggers ’s writing really takes off -- his forte is the messy, funny tirade, stuffed with convincing pain and wry observations.” -- Newsday

“Often rousing ...achieves a kind of anguished, profane poetry.” -- Newsweek

“The bottom line that matters is this: Eggers has written a terrific novel, an entertaining and imaginative tale.” -- The Boston Globe

“There are some wonderful set-pieces here, and memorable phrases tossed on the ground like unwanted pennies from the guy who runs the mint.” -- The Washington Post Book World

“Powerful.... Eggers’s strengths as a writer are real: his funny pitch-perfect dialog; the way his prose delicately captures the bumblebee blundering of Will’s thoughts; ... and the stream-water clarity of his descriptions.... There is genius here.... Who is doing more, single-handedly and single-mindedly, for American writing?” -- Time

About the Author:
