eBook of the Week: A Hologram for the King

HologramNow that you’ve read The Circle, the 2015-16 Campus Read selection, here’s another Dave Eggers book to check out.

A Hologram for the King was a finalist for the 2012 National Book Award (the winner was The Round House by North Dakota author Louise Erdrich) and was also named one of the New York Times Book Review’s 10 Best Books of the Year.

    “In a rising Saudi Arabian city, far from weary, recession-scarred America, a struggling businessman named Alan Clay pursues a last-ditch attempt to stave off foreclosure, pay his daughter’s college tuition, and finally do something great. In A Hologram for the King, Dave Eggers takes us around the world to show how one man fights to hold himself and his splintering family together.” — Publisher description
