About the author

Biography of Eggers, Dave

Dave Eggers was born on March 12th, 1970, in Boston, Massachusetts. His family moved to Lake Forest, Illinois when he was a child. Eggers attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, until his parents' deaths in 1991 & 1992. The loss left him responsible for his eight-year-old brother and later became the inspiration for his highly acclaimed memoir "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius". Published in 2000, the memoir was nominated for a nonfiction Pulitzer the following year.

Eggers has also written several novels and edits the popular "The Best American Nonrequired Reading" published annually. In 1998, he founded the independent publishing house, McSweeney's which publishes a variety of magazines and literary journals. Eggers has also opened several nonprofit writing centers for high school students across the United States. His title, A Hologram for the King, was a finalist for the 2012 National Book Award.

Book description

An elegantly designed package, a collector#146;'s item for long-standing patrons of McSweeney#146; 's and a bargain for those new to the journal To commemorate the fifteenth anniversary of the journal called "a key barometer of the literary climate" by the New York Times and twice honored with a National Magazine Award for fiction, here is ' The Best of McSweeney's' --a comprehensive collection of the most remarkable work from a remarkable magazine.

Drawing on the full range of the journal thus far--from the very earliest volumes to our groundbreaking, Chris Ware--edited graphic novel issue to our most popular project yet, the full-on Sunday-newspaper issue known as 'San Francisco Panorama', ' The Best of McSweeney's' is an essential retrospective of recent literary history. With full-color contributions from some of the pioneering artists and illustrators featured in our pages over the years (Marcel Dzama, Art Spiegelman, and many more) and a breathtaking array of first-rate fiction (and some incredible nonfiction, too), this is a book to be pored over, and lasting proof that the contemporary short story is as vital as ever. This special deluxe edition will feature a slipcase, or a box, or a container of some kind, maybe even with magnets? Or combs? Or playing cards? It'll be great.
