Summary
This is a 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. This is a captivating and hilarious novel about family, loss and recovery, and a powerful examination of contemporary American life
