I think I've mentioned my Eggers love before...and here I go again.
As well as writing fabulous books, Eggers also makes his books look amazing. Visit McSweeney's to see all the beautiful books and the wonderful wonderful McSweeney's Quarterly.
'You Shall Know our Velocity' was Eggers's followup to the massive success that was 'A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius'. I think I loved You Shall Know our Velocity (or YSKV) even more than AHWSG. Look at the cover! the book actually starts on the cover...
A few years later, the same book was brought out with a different cover (the book on the left in the picture) and also had an insert from another character in the book.
Eggers's most recent book is Zeitoun which came out in 2010 in the UK and is a non-fiction book about Hurricane Katrina and it's effects on one family. It's really wonderful, but also quite shocking and sad and was one of the best books I read last year (it would have been the best book I read last year, but Patti Smith went and wrote 'Just Kids' and no one else stood a chance).
