August 5th: Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius

Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, Dave Eggers

The literary sensation of the year, a book that redefines both family and narrative for the twenty-first century. A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius is the moving memoir of a college senior who, in the space of five weeks, loses both of his parents to cancer and inherits his eight-year-old brother. Here is an exhilarating debut that manages to be simultaneously hilarious and wildly inventive as well as a deeply heartfelt story of the love that holds a family together.

    A very interesting book. We all had different opinions about it. A very diverse discussion.

    I was unable to get the book from the library in time to read it and discuss it. Hopefully I will be able to join the next meet-up next month!
