What Is the What: The Autobiography of Valentino Achak Deng (Vintage) by Dave Eggers
What Is the What: The Autobiography of Valentino Achak Deng (Vintage)

Marguerite Dickinson, January 14, 2010

"At the young age of sixteen this book truly moved me.

What is the What is a truly moving story that swallows you whole and not only transforms your ideas about a troubled Africa, but America as well. What is the What is one of my favorite books of all time, and one I recommend highly to anyone who wants to see life and our role in it in a whole new perspective."
