How We Are Hungry
A better title for this book of short stories might have been How We Are Clever. Dave Eggers, the brains behind the alternative publishing initiative McSweeney's, who made a memorable debut as a novelist with A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, is not a writer who ever quite wants you to forget his considerable talents.
To this end, he has created for himself a tone of achingly intelligent disaffection. He writes as if burdened with the unhappy task of telling the truth about the world: someone has to do it and, given his gifts, it might as well be him. His stories are never content to be stories; they won't be complicit; they feel compelled to let you know that the process of storytelling is just one of the lies we tell ourselves about the world.
