"These tales reinvigorate that staid old form, the short story, with a jittery sense of adventure. . . . [Eggers] does things that should be impossible, and he does them gracefully." --"San Francisco Chronicle" "A tour de force. . . . [Eggers'] prose is supple, transparent and surprising." --"The New York Times Book Review""" "The man can simply write extraordinarily well. . . . How We Are Hungry""is a triumph of both form and content. . . . Dave Eggers is the real thing." --"The Guardian "(London) "Beautiful stories, anchored in the real world, with more bodies and objects than concepts or abstractions. There is a sense of human exuberance in the clean, swift language. . . . It looks like a classic." --"The Oregonian" "It's [the] tension between our base and noble impulses, our so-called animal and refined natures, that gives How We Are Hungry""its momentum. . . . Eggers is phenomenally talented--maybe uniquely so." --"The Washington Post" "Full of the
Dave Eggers has championed the cause of the short story so magnificently that through his McSweeney's magazine and its many imitators the form is once again in the ascendancy. Yet while celebrating the work of others, Eggers has also proved time and again that he himself is one of the modern masters of the form. This unmissable collection is Eggers's first, and showcases his talents in a variety of stories that are short-short, short-long and every length in between; and in stories that are dark, funny, inspiring, daring and endlessly inventive (including the acclaimed "Up the Mountain Coming Down Slowly"). In short, these stories will make you appreciate that Dave Eggers and the short story were made for each other and in turn, for you.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

I loved A Heatbreaking Work of Staggering Genius but to be honest, I like How We Are Hungry more.
It's a bit more accessibly written than AHWSG, and the plots are very orginal and entertaining.
If you want a book that will make you grin and laugh out loud(and who doesnt) this is the book for you.
I read 100 Years of Solitude - Marquez and Notes of A Dirty Old Man - Bukowski before this and its tied with those works as my current favorites if youve read them thats a good gague and also if you like HWAH then check those out if you havent. (which are great & i highly reccommend as well!)
This, his third book, a collection of short stories, reads more like a collection of ideas that never grew up to be bigger. Some, only a page or two long, never even made it to short-storyhood. His writing is fantastic, but I felt like, for most of the stories, I was reading about him or someone he knows. The characters are interesting, but all tend to act and sound the same. His stories have a bit of desperate sadness to them, but they never really go anywhere. Sometimes this is nice. Other times it would be nice to go somewhere with these interesting people. I was a little disappointed that my favorite story in the book is one I read years ago in a short story anthology. It's a great story told from the point of view of a dog. Perhaps I'm being unfair to expect to be blown away by everything Eggar's writes, but there are so many fantastic lines, brilliant descriptions and details laced throughout his stories that I want the stories themselves to be as good.
