Jennifer Egan | A Visit From the Goon Squad

Thu, June 17, 2010 7:30 P.M.
Parkway Central Library

Cost: FREE

According to the New York Times Book Review, Jennifer Egan writes with “an admirably deft touch, but more impressive than her craftsmanship is the emotional authenticity she achieves.” She is the author of novels The Keep, National Book Award finalist Look at Me, The Invisible Circus, and the story collection Emerald City. Her fiction has appeared in the New Yorker and Harper’s. In A Visit from the Goon Squad, Egan explores the human desire for immortality, escape, and redemption through music as she weaves the stories of an aging punk rocker and the young woman he employs.
