Dave Eggers

Heroes of the Frontier, A Novel by Dave Eggers. This book is about a woman and her two young children fleeing a bad marriage in Ohio and going to Alaska to live in a RV driving from Homer to Seward and then northward to escape from forest fires.

Eggers is a favorite author. I have read A Hologram for the King about Saudi Arabia and The Wild Things which is a book for children. It is available in a regular edition and a furred edition which I recommend. He also wrote a nonfiction book, Zeitoun, about a Muslim-American’s experiences during and after Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. It is a very vivid portrait and I consider it the best of his books that I have read so far.
