A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering Genius : A Memoir Based on a True Story

A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering Genius : A Memoir Based on a True Story - Dave Eggers how to describe reading this? he tells this pretty heartbreaking story (not a surprise if you believed the title) in a way that really belies the emotion behind it. to me, that made it a bit of a weird read, to see how intentionally he avoided the underlying stuff, while talking about everything else, and alluding to the feelings but (almost) never getting to them, while at the same time so obviously only thinking about them. i'm interested in reading him again just to see what else he does, and how he'd write fiction, but i'm still not quite sure how i feel about this one.
