"Exhilarating…Profoundly moving, occasionally angry, and often hilarious…A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius is, finally, a finite book of jest, which is why it succeeds so brilliantly" (The New York Times Book Review).
A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius is the moving memoir of a college senior who, in the space of five weeks, loses both of his parents to cancer and inherits his eight-year-old brother. Here is an exhilarating debut that manages to be simultaneously hilarious and wildly inventive as well as a deeply heartfelt story of the love that holds a family together.

Starts off a bit slow but once it picks up it's hard to put down.
Honestly the best modern book I've read
This is probably as close as we've gotten to the great American novel since huckleberry Finn
Dave, if you read these reviews: many many people are out here ready to be the lattice. Readers: this is a great book. Never read another one like it.
