this book is everywhere!

Just to give a glimpse of the far-reaching effects this book has had, I wanted to provide a few links to check out.

Achak and Eggers

I was surprised to see how effective the VAD foundation has been.  The work of this foundation has had significant and meaningful impacts on the people and landscape of Sudan.  The website is vast and in-depth and really worth checking out!

  1. I was curious as to why it’s not more clearly advertised that the book donates its proceeds to the foundation. Perhaps it is more obvious on the paperbacks from Random House, different from my edition (hardback, from the first publishing by McSweeney’s).
