Product details

Product description


A must read. Irresistible. Fiction of the highest quality. - Sunday Times.

It may be the smartest book you can get your hands on this summer. - Los Angeles Times

Exhilirating...arresting...brilliant. Turn up the music...and curl up with The Goon Squad. - Washington Post

A great work of fiction, a profound and glorious exploration of the fullness and complexity of the human condition. . . . An extraordinary new work of fiction.

- The New York Press

Egan's precise, calm underwater prose is a persistent pleasure. - Daily Telegraph.

A delight. - The Observer.

A Visit from the Goon Squad [is] an exhilarating, big-hearted, three-headed beast of a story. . . . [A] genius as a writer. . . . We see ourselves in all of Egan's characters because their stories of heartbreak and redemption seem so real they could be our own, regardless of the soundtrack. Such is the stuff great novels are made of. - Marie-Claire

Clever. Edgy. Groundbreaking. . . . It features characters about whom you come to care deeply as you watch them doing things they shouldn't, acting gloriously, infuriatingly human. - The Chicago Tribune

Book Description

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize. A brilliantly entertaining novel about memory, time, art and how humans connect at every level.
