Dave Eggers, author of The Circle and founder of McSweeney’s, will release his next novel, Heroes of the Frontier, this summer, Knopf announced Monday.
The novel follows a mother who moves with her two young children from suburban Ohio to rural Alaska — where she rents an RV and the three embark on a road trip. In a release, Knopf calls Heroes of the Frontier “a comic and rueful look at how the lives we imagine for ourselves coexist with the lives we are actually living, as well as an excoriating view of America in the twenty-first century.”
The publisher also shared the first two paragraphs of Heroes of the Frontier. Check them out below for a sneak peek inside:
Heroes of the Frontier will be released July 26, 2016.
