No, this is not another Charlie Sheen self-promo, but a congrats to Jennifer Egan for her award winning novel, A Visit From the Goon Squad. Egan’s novel is a story for the times, a Rock ‘n Roll fantasy, and a breathlessly satisfying read. I’ve read the other finalists (excepting Franzen’s Freedom), and it is the best of the lot.
I’d have preferred James Hynes’ Next, but hey! That’s just me.
