Visitants begins at 140 kilometers per hour, with Dave Eggers being driven across the Saudi Arabian desert by a hired driver who looks at him and says "American, boom boom!" Spanning over twenty years of travel, there are long, lighthearted and caterwauling adventures in places such as New Zealand, Idaho, Cuba and Thailand as well as briefer sketches of people he meets in Croatia, Egypt and Papua New Guinea. And there are meditative pieces from South Sudan and Syria that reveal another side to his acclaimed books What Is the What and Zeitoun. Vast in scope, the collection is shot through with a sense of danger and adventure as well as constant wrestling with complex issues of equity, empathy and shared purpose.
