Dave Eggers to Release ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ Novel

Dave Eggers, the author of Pulitzer Prize finalist “A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius” and co-writer of the upcoming “Where the Wild Things Are” film, is set to release a 300-page prose adaptation of the classic children’s book in October. You can pre-order it now at Amazon, where the description hints at a darker take on the story:

“[The book] is about the confusions of a boy, Max, making his way in a world he can’t control. His father is gone, his mother is spending time with a younger boyfriend, his sister is becoming a teenager and no longer has interest in him. At the same time, Max finds himself capable of startling acts of wildness: he wears a wolf suit, bites his mom, and can’t always control his outbursts. During a fight at home, Max flees and runs away into the woods.”
