I purchased The Wild Things while on a regular trip to Barnes and Noble. I actually started it when I had jury duty on Monday and didn't want to lug the giant tome that is a Diana Gabaldon novel. This book is much shorter and definitely lighter to carry in my handbag! I was immediately drawn into the slightly grown up version of everyone's favorite Where the Wild Things Are story.
Dave Eggers is one of my very favorite writers so I have faith that he'll do this childhood favorite justice.
