Synopsis:

A respected magazine editor/founder and onetime spokesman for Generation X offers a satiric, eloquent, and thoroughly tradition-shattering memoir that discusses the deaths of his parents from cancer, his raising of his younger brother, and more.


Review:

"[I]t is almost too good to be believed."

Ian Sansom, London Review of Books, 11/16/2000

Review:

"Eggers is a pleasingly complicated writer, constitutionally incapable of simple reflection; he always considers the multiplicity of paradoxical feelings and motivations behind a thing, as though only in descending orbit around this morass of complexity, this chaotic internal dialectic, can he get us closer to what he calls his 'core,' the thing that 'can't be articulated. Only caricatured.' He takes us close, shows us as much as he can bear. At its best, his book is a comic and moving witness that transcends and transgresses formal boundaries."

Adam Mazmanian, Washington Post Book World, 02/13/2000
