Heroes of the Frontier Reviewed in the National Post

From the review:

Early in Dave Egger’s seventh novel, Heroes of the Frontier, a rumpled man takes the stage on a cruise ship full of elderly vacationers in Alaska. The crowd had clapped listlessly for the earlier performers, a series of increasingly competent (and flashily dressed) magicians. But the newcomer reveals a singular talent, developed in his former job as a postal worker: He has memorized most of the zip codes in America. He asks the audience to try to stump him, and none can. He gets them all – Shoshone, Idaho; Punta Gorda, Florida; Cairo, Illinois; Chesterfield, Missouri. The bit kills, and the formerly placid crowd loses its collective mind. “Hear that,” one of the audience members says. “The man knows where I come from.”
