• Publisher's description. A brilliant new black comedy about modern America. A surreal family road trip through the Alaskan wilderness veers wildly off-course, as one mother and her two young children try to make their way back to the 'right' path - and find a new one along the way.

  • An unlikely state of the nation novel...The mirror image of Egger's brilliantly dystopian The Circle...[It] acts on the reader like a breath of Alaskan air, cleansing the spirit and lifting the heart

  • A classic American hymn to what you can discover when you leave everything behind

    Daily Mail
  • Sharp, funny, unforgettable

    The Times
  • Eggers is an engaging storyteller, with a sure sense of character and a keen eye for the bizarre

    Financial Times
  • The phenomenally productive Eggers has talent to spare...Remarkable, illuminating, believable...[It] entertains, often spectacularly

    Barbara Kingsolver, New York Times Book Review
  • It gleefully defies classification but, in returning again and again to the complex, overpowering love between guardian and child, feels like classic Eggers

    The Times
  • A softer, hipper version of Cormac McCarthy's The Road...Eggers' winning streak continues.
