Dave Eggers is so goddamn clever it wrecks my head. At first, I thought I was just admiring What is the What from a distance. But then I started dreaming about it. And when I got towards the end, instead of picking up speed as I usually do, I slowed down. And saved the last 30 pages until I could carve out the perfect time, when I was at home and undistracted and comfortable to savour it. I'm taking a few days off reading to recover.
