WHOLPHIN award at SXSW!
HOLY MACKEREL! Eagleman just picked up the Wholphin Award at SXSW!
Wholphin is the ludicrously good film distribution project established by Dave Eggers, one of the most inspiring contemporary writers about, who amongst other things (like founding McSweeneys Quaterly and co-writing the Where the Wild Things Are film) wrote an incredible book A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, a book I found greatly inspiring when writing TES. This really takes the biscuit. I'm not sure who's directly responsible for this, but I'm wobbly inside.
