Waiting on Wednesday: A Visit from the Goon Squad
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
This week’s pre-publication can’t wait to read selection is:
A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan
Bennie Salazar, an aging punk rocker and record executive, and the beautiful Sasha, the troubled young woman he employs, never discover each other’s pasts, but the reader does, in intimate detail, along with the secret lives of a host of other people whose paths intersect with theirs in the course of nearly fifty years. A Visit from the Goon Squad is about time, about survival, about our private terrors, and what happens when we fail to rebound.
This title will be released on June 8, 2010.
