Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan
The long-awaited novel from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Visit from the Goon Squad, Manhattan Beach opens in Brooklyn during the Great Depression. Anna Kerrigan, nearly twelve years old, accompanies her father to the house of a man who, she gleans, is crucial to the survival of her father and her family. Mesmerizing, hauntingly beautiful, with the pace and atmosphere of a noir thriller and a wealth of detail about organized crime, the merchant marine and the clash of classes in New York, Egan’s first historical novel is a masterpiece, a deft, startling, intimate exploration of a transformative moment in the lives of women and men, America and the world. Manhattan Beach is a magnificent novel by one of the greatest writers of our time. Pleas note that we collect $1 at each meeting, to help cover the cost of using the Meetup Web site.

We meet on the third Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. at the Barnes and Noble Bookstore in Cherry Hill, except in December. You can find us in the middle of the store, near the electronics section. You are welcome to come even if you haven't finished the book. So come out and join us!
