What is the What

(2006)
The Autobiography of Valentino Achak Deng
A novel by

 

"One of the best writers around."
Nick Hornby


In a sprawling and epic novel, Dave Eggers illuminates the history of the civil war in Sudan through the eyes of a young boy, Valentino Achak Deng. What is the What tells the story of Valentino and another boy, both caught in the Sudanese civil war. One, at seven, is too young to know what's happening; the other, at ten, is old enough to fight for the rebel army. The two struggle through the brutal war, enduring the surreal world their country has become. In many ways a complete departure from the author's previous works, this book is a straightforward and unflinching portrayal of the madness of war; yet it is also full of unexpected humor and adventure. What ist he What is heartrending and astonishing, filled with adventure, suspense, tragedy and, finally, triumph.
