Globalization. The protagonist of Dave Eggers novel, A Hologram for the King, works for a global IT company, and he is in Saudi Arabia to pitch the company’s products and services to King Abdullah. Any salesperson or business executive who has made an important presentation to a key decision maker will empathize with much of what Alan Clay encounters. Eggers has created a great character in Clay, and the ways in which the trends in globalization are embodied in Clay himself make the humor and tragedy even sharper.
Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
