How Have I Not Read This? Virtual Book Club
Hosted by the Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group
Featuring Jennifer Egan, author of A Visit From the Goon Squad
In conversation with Michelle Zauner
Join celebrated author Jennifer Egan for a live, virtual discussion of her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, A Visit From the Goon Squad. When it was first published in 2010 (and launched at Greenlight Bookstore!), A Visit From the Goon Squad was hailed by Time magazine as "a new classic of American fiction" and won that year's Pulitzer Prize, National Book Critics Circle Award, and Los Angeles Times Book Prize, becoming a major national bestseller. More recently, earlier this year Entertainment Weekly named it "the best book of the decade". This stunningly original novel follows Bennie, an aging former punk rocker and record executive, and Sasha, a passionate and troubled young woman he employs, revealing their pasts along with the inner lives of a host of other characters whose paths intersect with theirs. This is an exhilarating novel of music, self-destruction, and redemption. Egan will discuss the book with musician and writer Michelle Zauner and with attendees. Greenlight is proud to be the featured bookseller for this exciting event with our beloved friend, neighbor, and now-canonical author Jenny Egan!
