I have a problem.
(In fact I have plenty but we're here to discuss just one of them)
I suffer from an irrational loathing of Eggers. Dave Eggers.
Why? I don't understand it. From the first moment I saw A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius come into the shop I hated it. I can't stand McSweeny's. The fact Dave (I shudder) does great and admirable things such as fund non-profit education centres etc is no help.
I just don't trust him...
My ravings have been prompted by the arrival of the UK edition (what took you man?) of What Is The What (Ugh those titles!) and the fact it is weighed down with adoring quotes.
Sorry Dave, I'm sure of two things.
1: You are probably a really good bloke.
2: You don't know (or care) who I am or what I think of you.
But I just had to get it out.
