Into Alaska with Dave Eggers

In Dave Eggers’ new novel, Heroes of the Frontier, a mother flees a suburban Midwestern life and a partner she calls “an invertebrate” and lights out with her two children to Alaska, where she imagines everyone must be living “a plain-spoken and linear existence centered around work and trees and sky.” There’s an interview with Eggers in National Geographic, where he talks about the joys of road trips and of travelling without an itinerary. An extract from the book was published recently in the Review section of The Daily Telegraph.
