In his first novel, Dave Eggers has written a moving and hilarious tale of two friends who fly around the world trying to give away a lot of money and free themselves from a profound loss. It reminds us once again what an important, necessary talent Dave Eggers is.
“Headlong, heartsick and footsore....Frisbee sentences that sail, spin, hover, circle and come back to the reader like gifts of gravity and grace....Nobody writes better than Dave Eggers about young men who aspire to be, at the same time, authentic and sincere.”—The New York Times Book Review
"You Shall Know Our Velocity! is the work of a wildly talented writer... Like Kerouac's book, Eggers's could inspire a generation as much as it documents it."—LA Weekly
"Eggers is a wonderful writer, bold and inventive, with the technique of a magic realist."—Salon
"An entertaining and profoundly original tale."—San Francisco Chronicle
“The bottom line that matters is this: Eggers has written a terrific novel, an entertaining and imaginative tale.”—The Boston Globe
“There are some wonderful set-pieces here, and memorable phrases tossed on the ground like unwanted pennies from the guy who runs the mint.”—The Washington Post Book World
