A VISIT FROM THE GOON SQUAD, BY JENNIFER EGAN

Hey, I think this is a great novel for those of you who like something a little bit different; creative writing and a good story to boot. Jennifer Egan's Pulitzer prize-winning novel has been described as having a kind of unorthodox format. Entertainment weekly describes a Visit from the Goon Squad as "A frequently dazzling piece of layer-cake metafiction…a gutsy novel that succeeds on all levels."
The story involves intersecting lives of characters who are sort of living on the fringe of the music industry, kind of hitting bottom in their lives. Sounds kind of depressing, but it is supposed to be very interesting according to people that I've talked with.
Enjoy

    Sorry, I won't make it tonight either. I'll be at Underground Books for the discussion on The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration. Next time!
