Dave Eggers Interview with New York Mag

We like how Dave Eggers got the gig. It’s every fanboy’s ultimate fantasy:

How did you hook up with Spike Jonze?

I wrote him a fan letter for Being John Malkovich. And I was a longtime worshipper of Maurice. I grew up wanting to be a writer and illustrator of children’s books – I still have a lot of books I did as a kid. So it was a ridiculous combination: I was a fanboy of both.

Proof flattery will get you everywhere.
