Dave Eggers and Valentino Achak Deng

24 May 2007

For his latest book, Dave Eggers, author of A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius and the novel You Shall Know Our Velocity, Dave Eggers has spent years entrenching himself in the community of Sudanese refugees in the US and travelled to the Sudan itself to write What is the What, a fictionalised account of the early life of a Sudanese war orphan called Valentino Achak Deng, a refugee from one of the most brutal civil wars Africa has ever known. In this unique encounter, both come to the ICA to talk about the project, and about the human impact of war in Sudan.
