Order of Dave Eggers Books
Dave Eggers is an American author of literary fiction and non-fiction, in addition to also being an editor and a publisher. He is the son of an attorney and a teacher. Both of his parents died relatively young, and thus he ended up having to take care of his eight-year-old brother, interrupting his journalism studies at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. These events were chronicled in his first book, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius. He later founded his own publishing house, McSweeney’s. Eggers is married to fellow writer Vendela Vida and lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
