Description

The best-selling author of A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, Dave Eggers announced himself as a literary force with this striking debut. It is the tale of two friends on a globe-trekking quest-at turns hilarious, frustrating, and heartbreaking-to give away money while grieving a painful loss. "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 ."-New York Times Book Review

Professional reviews

"After their childhood friend, Jack, is killed in a car accident, Will and his buddy, Hand, decide to travel around the world to distribute a windfall of $80,000 to the needy and deserving. Dion Graham's spot-on emotional reading of the young men's crazy adventures, and especially of Will's many tortured internal dialogues, saves the novel from monotony. Through Graham's expressive performance, listeners are able to relate to Will's genuine grief and confusion and cringe at Hand's unpredictability and obliviousness. Without the filter of Graham's narration, the men's adolescent behavior could be difficult to endure. As they travel from Chicago to Africa to the Baltics on their circuitous one-week journey to divest themselves of cash, Graham easily handles the variety of necessary accents. C.B.L.
