5 out of 5 stars Holy crap, this somehow isnt self-indulgent!, May 6, 2008
By Catgirl69
One would think a Dave Eggers foray into the broad ideal of "African Aid" would reek of pretension and self-deprecating malaise endemic to New York mid-30s late 20s literary life. But no! What we have here is a touching portrait written, only in pen, by Dave Eggers. This is Valentino Dengs journey, not Eggers. The language is strongly his and where this McSweenys founder shines is his ability to craft narrative. Hes not writing in this book so much as ordering the events of Dengs life into the terrible and awesome journey it has become. Its a great book.

Short Desription

What Is the What is the epic novel based on the life of Valentino Achak Deng who, along with thousands of other children--the so-called Lost Boys--was forced to leave his village in Sudan at the age of seven and trek hundreds of miles by foot, pursued by militias, government bombers, and wild animals, crossing the deserts of three countries to find freedom. When he finally is resettled in the United States, he finds a life full of promise, but also heartache and myriad new challenges. Moving, suspenseful, and unexpectedly funny, What Is the What is an astonishing novel that illuminates the lives of millions through one extraordinary man.
