His new novel is A Hologram for the King.
One of Eggers's six favorite books, as told to The Week magazine:
The Sheltering Sky by Paul BowlesRead about another novel on Eggers's list.
Every time I read this book I love it more. Terrible things happen to its characters, three young Americans traveling through Morocco, but Bowles's writing is so hypnotic that the calamities are seen through a certain anodyne haze. And despite its darkness, it's the most humane of existential novels.
