about

Within five weeks, a college senior loses both his parents to cancer and is bequeathed his eight-year-old brother. Having finished college and moved to Berkeley, Calif., with his little brother, Toph, he tries to be a father. Despite the responsibilities of cooking, cleaning and bill-paying, he is still just a playful older brother. Unique, entertaining, self-deprecating, satirical yet startlingly beautiful, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius is a passionate and funny true story of a troubled family. Might magazine founder and McSweeney's editor Dave Eggers recounts his heartwrenching experiences in this darkly humorous, self-conscious anti-memoir.
