Praise for Hologram for the King :

“Mr. Eggers uses a new, pared down, Hemingwayesque voice to recount his story… he demonstrates in Hologram that he is master of this more old-fashioned approach as much as he was a pioneering innovator with A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius….[This] sad-funny-dreamlike story unfolds to become an allegory about the frustrations of middle-class America, about the woes unemployed workers and sidelined entrepreneurs have experienced in a newly globalized world in which jobs are being outsourced abroad…. A comic but deeply affecting tale about one man’s travails that also provides a bright, digital snapshot of our times.”
—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

“[A] supremely readable parable of America in the global economy that is haunting, beautifully shaped and sad … With ferocious energy and versatility, [Eggers] has been studying how the world is remaking America … Eggers has developed an exceptional gift for opening up the lives of others so as to offer the story of globalism as it develops and, simultaneously, to unfold a much more archetypal tale of struggle and loneliness and drift.”
—Pico Iyer, The New York Times Book Review

“Wonderful… . [A Hologram for the King] is Death of a Salesman set in post-industrial America.”—Michael Silverblatt, host of KCRW’s Bookworm

“A spare but moving elegy for the American century.”
Publishers Weekly

“Eggers can do fiction as well as he likes.”
—Carolyn Kellogg, The Los Angeles Times “A potent, well-drawn portrait of one man’s discovery of where his personal and professional selves split and connect. [Eggers] masters the hurry-up-and-wait rhythm of Alan’s visit… This book is firm proof that that social concerns can make for resonant storytelling.”
Kirkus

“An extraordinary work of timely and provocative themes…This novel reminds us that above all, Eggers is a writer of books, and a writer of the highest order….An outstanding achievement in Eggers’s already impressive career, and an essential read.”
—Carmela Ciuraru, The San Francisco Chronicle “Eggers understands the pressures of American downward-mobility, and in the protagonist of his novel, Alan Clay, has created an Everyman, a post-modern Willy Loman….The novel operates on a grand and global scale, but it also is intimate.”
—Elizabeth Taylor, The Chicago Tribune
