Publisher Description

"Exhilarating…Profoundly moving, occasionally angry, and often hilarious...A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius is, finally, a finite book of jest, which is why it succeeds so brilliantly" (The New York Times Book Review).

A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius is the unique, moving memoir of a college senior who, in the space of five weeks, loses both of his parents to cancer and inherits his eight-year-old brother. In his distinctive style unlike any other memoir, Egger's story is an exhilarating debut that manages to be simultaneously hilarious and wildly inventive, as well as a deeply heartfelt story of the love that holds a family together.

Jeff Dixon ,

Honestly the best modern book I've read

This is probably as close as we've gotten to the great American novel since huckleberry Finn

Horrible

I must be missing something. One of the worst books I've ever read. Forced myself to finish, thinking it must get better, nope.

Aliette H. Carolan ,

Excellent

Starts off a bit slow but once it picks up it's hard to put down.
