"What is the What" novel

Im looking forward to get a copy of this book. Its a novel written by Dave Eggers, a story of Valentino Achok Deng of his life in the midst of conflict in Sudan. I had the opportunity this morning after the mass to meet and  listened to Valentino Achok Deng's remarkable story. As described that this is an astonishing, eye-opening, and heartbreaking book that defies classification. What is the What tells a devastating story but never plays for sympathy. Instead, the hope, complexity, and tragedy of the situation take center stage. This novel has been highly acclaimed that even President Obama has requested that his staff read it. And as you buy a copy, all proceeds from the sale will go towards providing educational opportunities for the Sudanese people in Sudan and in the United States. So in one way we can help this people.
