Dave Eggers - You're Booked

This week we're delighted to present this late night, transatlantic phone chat with the legendary Dave Eggers! Dave is the author of many books including The Circle, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, A Hologram for the King, What Is the What, and The Museum of Rain. His latest if the tech satire The Every. He's also the founder of publishing house McSweeney's and co-founder of 826 National, a network of youth writing and tutoring centres around America. We talked to him about avoiding The Plague, deep-diving into Melville, timeless kids books and who the funniest writer in the world happens to be.
