I just finished Dave Egger's How We Are Hungry, it's a collection of short stories. It was quite excellent. The short snippets between most of the longer stories were usually very good. My favorite one I can think of, out of all, was "Climbing Up the Window, Pretending to Dance" (I think this was the title, I don't have the book with me at the moment.
Not to mention the book itself is slick looking.
Has anyone ever read a piece of literature in another language?
