A Hologram for the King Chapter 33

By Dave Eggers

Chapter 33

  • Alan and Zahra end their disastrous lovemaking attempt by drinking lots of wine. Lots of it.
  • It's clear that they may never hook up again, what with their schedules.
  • Alan recalls Zahra's problematic teenage son and tells her a story that he thinks will help.
  • It's about the time Alan's dad took him camping without any equipment in freezing weather. His dad did it to encourage Alan to be self-reliant, to think on his feet.
  • Alan had to find shelter and warmth for them both. Zahra thinks Alan's dad was nuts. She thinks the story is rather sad—not at all inspirational.
