How We Are Hungry is a collection of Dave Eggers' short stories that twist and inspire the imagination. Dave Eggers has championed the cause of the short story so magnificently that through his own McSweeney's magazine and through its many imitators the form is once again in the ascendant. Yet while celebrating the work of others, Eggers has also proved himself time and again one of the modern masters of the form. This unmissable collection is Egger's first, and showcases his talents in a variety of stories that are short-short, short-long and every length in between- and in stories that are dark, funny, inspiring, daring and endlessly inventive (including the acclaimed 'Up the Mountain Coming Down Slowly'). In short, in stories that will make you appreciate that Dave Eggers and the short story were made for each other - and, in turn, for you. "Possibly the most admired and emulated American author of his generation." (Independent). "Brilliant, confident floods of language." (Sunday Herald). "Intensely pleasurable, striking in its beauty...a triumph of both form and content." (Guardian).

    Thank you for this and I can't wait to read the book as I am a yeller and have 3(almost 4 year old) twins and I know I need to stop yelling at them. I, like you saw the fear in their eyes of mom's wrath and I have to stop so I can't wait on this book and I will be taking the challenge on this website! Again I can't thank you enough for opening my eyes and making me see that I am not alone!

      I just finished Into The Dim about 5 minutes ago, and I have to say, it had been a VERY long time since I found a book that I loved this much! I haven't really had a favorite book in the past 6 or 7 years, but that has officially changed! When is the next book coming out?!?!? I can't wait!!!!!

      Hi Jeremy, you mentioned that The GoDaddy website builder is not designed for building an online store at all, however I have checked it and they do have an online store.
