Abstract

Jennifer Egan's latest book, A Visit from the Goon Squad brings together characters who are connected through the rock music industry or their friends. We see them through generations and get a sense of how time shapes life in a series of episodes. Critics have puzzled over whether it's a novel or a set of inter-connected short stories, but readers have embraced the book, making it a bestseller.
