I was a great fan of Eggers' first book. AHWOSG and although only seventy pages into YSKOV I know I'm going to enjoy it. His style is kinetic and neon; in both color and clarity. And it never goes the way you expected. I think he's left a bit of the anger from his first work behind. But he's still got enough angst to let you feel it.

David Eggers will find his way to Poland where my friend Jessica will pick up the trail. Her mission, if she chooses to accept it, is leave it on a Park Bench. Which she knows. God Speed YSKOV!

So, I caught this book here in Warsaw, Poland by Eggars. (Thank you friend.) I've read a bit of his stuff before- A Heart Breaking Work of Staggering Genius and I've perrused through the site he edits, The McSweeney Tendency. I think this book was pretty characteristic, moments of genius hidden in hours of description meant mostly for a man's eyes. His concepts never come full circle until the very end, which is a nice exit from what is usually spoon-fed. I think, by far, my favorite line of the book is/was: "To travel is selfish- that money could be used for hungary stomachs and your using it for your hungry eyes." How appropriate for me to get and read that line in this book. Also, as an appology to whomever finds it next, I spilled a bit of yougart on it, towards the back, say around page 250. Sorry. But, I guess it adds character? Doesn't it? I shall leave it on a bench then, maybe the one by the Sweedish embassy. We'll see though. We'll see.

I was givin this book by Jessica who gave it to me in Warsaw. Sorry she didnt leave it on the park bench but I really need something to read. I am on my way to Prague and plan on giving it to someone in my hostel. This wasnt my favorite book ever but not bad.
