The book includes a CD (affixed to the inner back cover) featuring Gira narrating many of the stories included in The Egg, as well as a few stories from his (out of print) book, The Consumer.
Included are several full-page illustrations executed by Nicole Boitos, in close collaboration with M. Gira.
“ These stories were written over the course of the past year. They are the burnished, gathered and organized residues of a mind eating itself. The book is a work of fiction. It bears no resemblance, intentional or otherwise, to anything other than itself.” – M. Gira
