Dave Eggers will buck you up

Dave Eggers should change his name to Dave Motherfucking Eggers, because he is sort of like a literary Steve McQueen. If you need any evidence as to why, The New Yorker transcribes his speech at the Author’s Guild party and you will understand what I’m talking about:

“Nothing has changed! The written word—the love of it and the power of the written word—it hasn’t changed. It’s a matter of fostering it, fertilizing it, not giving up on it, and having faith.”
