As editor of McSweeney's ('America's most interesting publication' in the words of Time Out), Dave Eggers has been partly responsible for a rejuvenation of short fiction in the USA. At the same time he has also developed his own unique, funny, endlessly inventive take on the short story form.How We Are Hungry collects the best of his recent (long) short fiction, none published before in the UK. It is the perfect companion not only to his other books but to the (very short) short stories he has been writing weekly for the Guardian magazine.

How We Are Hungry is a gripping, lyrical and soulful collection of stories from the acclaimed author of A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius. Ranging from a doomed Irish setter's tales of running and jumping ("After I Was Thrown in the River and Before I Drowned") to a bitterly comic meditation on suicide and friendship ("Climbing to the Window, Pretending to Dance"), and from the Egyptian desert to the asphalt of Interstate 5, these stories are Eggers at his finest. By turns devastating, clear-eyed and funn - incredibly funny - this collection is a marvel.About the Author:
