Bookwaves – April 18, 2019: Dave Eggers

Richard Wolinsky and Dave Eggers.

Dave Eggers discusses his latest novel, “The Parade” with host Richard Wolinsky.

The author of several works of fiction and non-fiction, Dave Eggers is best known for the memoir “A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius,” a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. He is also the founder of McSweeney’s publishing house in San Francisco, and is an acclaimed journalist who writes for The Guardian and elsewhere.

“The Parade” takes place in an unnamed country as two contractors work to complete a road leading from a formerly rebellious part of the country into the capital city.

In this wide-ranging interview, he also talks about Trump rallies and their surprisingly diverse audiences, and about his career as a writer and screenwriter.

The complete 35-minute interview can be found as a Radio Wolinsky podcast.
