What Is the What: The Autobiography of Valentino Achak Deng: A Novel Dave Eggers McSweeney's / 478 pages / $26 As the best-known writer of his generation, Dave Eggers has attracted more than his share of criticism. He has been accused of pretension, self-indulgence, false modesty and flagrant postmodernism (whatever that might be). Most of these bombs have been lobbed by folks who are envious of Eggers - his youth, his talent, his outsize ambition. Very few of his critics, at any rate, have bothered to identify Eggers for what he is: an unabashed humanist.

You may have been able to find many works of staggering genius over the weekend in the Baltimore area, but if you wanted "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius," the much-hyped and critically lauded memoir by Dave Eggers, you had to work at it. The book, which recounts how Eggers, at the age of 21, came to care for a younger brother after their parents died within 32 days of each other, was on back-order at all four Bibelot stores. Meanwhile, supplies were going fast at local Borders and Barnes and Noble stores.

"A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius," by Dave Eggers. Simon & Schuster. 375 pages. $23. It takes some nerve to call your memoir "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius," especially if you're only 29, as author Eggers is. But read 10 paragraphs and you'll be aware it's a joke, he means it ironically. It's a whole Gen-X thing, being ironic about the media, even if you're the one creating the piece of media, in this case a wordy, overgrown, ceaselessly self-conscious account of Eggers' life from senior year in college until age 26. This young author is so, you know, not part of the old system, that he even reveals in the preface how much he was paid for A.H.W.

Just under 800 people in the United States bought a Townes Van Zandt album last week, a sales rate that has held fairly steady for about a decade. That information comes from SoundScan, which monitors such things. One thing SoundScan can't tell us is who bought those Van Zandt albums, but over the years the list surely has included Bob Dylan, Bono, Lucinda Williams, John Prine, Lyle Lovett and Merle Haggard. Steve Earle, one of today's most acclaimed songwriters, is such a supporter that he once called Van Zandt the best songwriter in the world and vowed that he would "stand on Bob Dylan's coffee table in my cowboy boots" and tell Dylan so. Even if you don't join in that colorful evaluation, the just-released The Best of Townes Van Zandt should convince you that the Texan, who died of a heart attack in 1997 at age 52, deserves a place on the short list of great singer-songwriters of the modern pop era. At a time when pop music is starving for quality writers, it's disheartening to think that Van Zandt's catalog -- about a dozen original studio collections, live albums and retrospectives -- accounts for just 1,000 of the 12 million or so albums sold each week.

Only after reading an advertisement from the venerable publisher Houghton Mifflin did I start noticing the depth and breadth of a phenomenon in the book world. Visits to bookstores heightened my awareness. The full extent of the phenomenon dawned on me a few days later as I scanned my bookshelves at home, filled with titles I had never thought of as related. The phenomenon is the proliferation of anthologies offering the "best of," as in The Best American Poetry 2003. Houghton Mifflin, the most expansive "best of" publisher, has registered the phrase "The Best American Series" as a trademark.

North Carroll girls lacrosse coach Amy Eggers believes her senior-laden team has the requisite experience to play with any squad in Carroll County this season, including perennial power Liberty. Last night, her Panthers gave a glimpse of that potential. Facing a Francis Scott Key team returning most of its defense from a year ago, host North Carroll didn't take long to heat up in blustery Hampstead, scoring eight straight goals in the game's first 11 minutes on their way to a convincing 18-4 win in the season-opener for both teams.
