"What is the What"

What words does one use to describe the new book by Dave Eggers "What is the What". Powerful, heartbreaking, informative, and intelligent come to mind. The writing is clear, unassuming and literate. This is an important book. An awake person should consider buying it. If read, it will likely be compelling and perhaps inspiring. If not read, that's ok, as all the proceeds from the book go to Sudanese refugees in America, the rebuilding of southern Sudan, and to organizations working for peace and humanitarian relief in Darfur.

"It is no way to live, to wait to love." Valentino Achak Deng, "What is the What", page 318
