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.
