Heroes of the Frontier: Dave Eggers

When our protaganist, Josie’s, life fails completely (career, marriage, friends, family, social beliefs) she packs up her two kids and flees to the farthest part of America available, Alaska.

Despite this distance, her journey never goes farther than the struggle in her own heart and soul.

Fitting, since the Alaska portrayed is some kind of fictional location that doesn’t exist in reality.

It didn’t really matter where she fled; what she had to find was what was hidden inside herself.
