Dave Eggers's newest novel "The Parade" follows the construction of a road through an unidentified developing country that is recovering from a recent civil war. Written in spare prose, and with few identifying details about location and characters, the book becomes a parable of the increasing moral complexities involved in international aid. Eggers joins us to speak about the book and the questions it poses about the ethics of well-intentioned development projects.
