A Visit from the Goon Squad (2010) by Jennifer Egan
The story of a former punk musician/record executive and the troubled young woman that he employs.
“Although shredded with loss, “A Visit From the Goon Squad” is often darkly, rippingly funny. Egan possesses a satirist’s eye and a romance novelist’s heart.” – Will Blythe for The New York Times
“This is a difficult book to summarise, but a delight to read, gradually distilling a medley out of its polyphonic, sometimes deliberately cacophonous voices.” – Sarah Churchwell for The Guardian
