內容簡介

被譽為當代美國文壇最具天賦的小說家、
《梭哈人生》《揭密風暴》暢銷作家戴夫.艾格斯最新力作!

前牙醫師Josie的生活一團糟:她因為被患者提告而失去工作、聽從她建議的年輕男子戰死沙場,而她和她兩個孩子的爸爸也已經分手。

她決定逃離一切,租了露營車,帶著孩子踏上前往阿拉斯加的未知旅程。起初,一切都像在度假,不管是在營火上烤熱狗、欣賞風景,或是目擊野生動物,都十分愜意。

但當Josie越深入北方的荒野、越開往森林的深處,從一路上遇見舉止怪異的居民開始,到幾乎受困於森林大火中,一切都變得越來越超現實,她的過去也一一被揭露,理智與文明逐漸崩解……


From the bestselling author of The Circle comes a brilliant new black comedy about modern America

A mother and her two young children rent a battered old RV (optimistically christened the 'Chateau') and embark upon a journey through the Alaskan wilderness. At first their trip feels like a vacation: they spot wild animals, build bonfires, enjoy the scenery. But as Josie drives her kids deeper into the forest, dodging wildfires and increasingly eccentric locals, we learn more of the events that forced her to escape her old life. Fraught with unexpected encounters from the sublime to the ridiculous, her tiny family must survive this surreal adventure at all costs, in order to finally discover something clean and redemptive out at the very edge of civilization.

Heroes of the Frontier is a captivating and hilarious novel about family, loss and recovery, and a powerful examination of contemporary American life.
