Usually I think Eggers is a bit of an ass weevil but this kind of looks cool.

I saw this in a magazine and thought "That is quite possibly one of the coolest book covers I have ever seen."

Yeah, I dig the cover too. And I dig stuff about Katrina so this might be for me.

is already reading this, and I plan to dig in soon, or soonish (which means later). Did either of you guys read
What is the What
? It's clear there's a lot of aggro aimed at Eggers 'round these parts, but I've generally liked the guy's work, as a writer and as a publisher.

I promise to finish
by the time another Republicon gets elected president. Or when your avatar shows you with a combover and a big sincere smile. Whichever comes first.

BTW, Michael, I read and liked
What Is the What?
(Shhh, don't tell anyone.) I pretty much hated his short story collection
How We Are Hungry
. But that's all I've read by him.

I don't care much for his writing but his work as an editor and as a supporter of other writers is unsurpassed.
I tried to submit some short stories to McSweeney's several times. no go. But the editors over there were so frigging kind and personable that I still thought it was a great experience. They really took the time to communicate with me on a personal level and make constructive suggestions about my stuff. Stellar behavior. Eggers runs a good shop.
