‘It’s a glorified backpack of tubes and turbines’: Dave Eggers on jetpacks and the enigma of solo flight

We have jetpacks and we do not care. An Australian named David Mayman has invented a functioning jetpack and has flown it all over the world – once in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty – yet few people know his name. His jetpacks can be bought but no one is clamouring for one. For decades, humans have said they want jetpacks, and for thousands of years we have said we want to fly, but do we really? Look up. The sky is empty.

Dave Eggers: “The Every” (Part 2)

Dave Eggers further discusses his new book, “The Every.” He wants to entertain himself and the reader, and point out the ludicrousness of how we live. He speaks about the thoughts and feelings his book explores; how our time appears to him. He laughs out loud and feels terrified by tech monopolies measuring unmeasurable things--the tragicomedy of emojis. “The Every” captures our time, the world around us, and the lives within it.

Dave Eggers: “The Every” (Part 1)

Beginning as a rebel, protagonist Delaney ends as the polar opposite: a cog in a machine of surveillance capitalism. “The Every” is the new book by Dave Eggers, a follow-up to his book “The Circle.” Corporate autocracy is explored through satire, social criticism, and emotion, to evoke ideas Eggers considers terrifying, funny and ludicrous. Eggers says he wants to provoke thought and discussion without easy answers. He discusses the endless difficulty of making a coherent novel of ideas with characters you care about.
