Literary Globe interview with author Jennifer Egan and winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for fiction. "A visit from the Goon Squad".
The English Bookshops Book group Review: "A visit from the Goon Squad".
It was a chilly evening in Amsterdam with the outside temperature at minus degrees. Despite this, there was a good turnout for the book group. Nobody was surprised that Ms. Egan won the Pulitzer Prize for this work: it is notable for its excellent style with characters that are believable and likable. Some of us did find the science fiction ending weird as this was a total switch from the rest of the book. Overall though, we rated this book 4 ½ out of 5.
