You Shall Know Our Velocity Paperback / softback


You Shall Know Our Velocity is a compelling and thought-provoking novel by award-winning Dave EggersWill and Hand are burdened by $38,000 and the memory of their friend Jack.

Taking a week out of their lives, they decide to travel around the world to give the money away.

They can't really say why they're doing it, just that it needs to be done.

Perhaps it's something to do with Jack's death - perhaps they'll find the reason later.

But as their plans are frustrated, twisted and altered at every step and the natives prove far from grateful to their benefactors, Will and Hand find that the world is an infinitely bigger, more surreal and exhilarating place than they ever realised.

In fact, it's somewhere to get lost in . . . 'Dave Eggers has become J. D. Salinger, Ken Kesey and Jack Kerouac rolled into one' The Times'Endearing, funny . . . the prose is high on energy and Eggers' talents make it worth the trip' Guardian
