11/9 A Visit From the Goon Squad

Finished  Jenneifer Egan’s A Visit From the Goon Squad – the 2011 Pulitzer Prize winner.  I was wary going into this book,  I’ve read Egan before and was not terribly impressed.  But a friend raved so I caved but my interest was not that of my friend.   I didn’t hate it –  it just seemed like a mishmash of stories with a whole lot of characters who sometimes worked to connect the stories but from different angles.  Here’s my review:    But there’s a much better one by Janet Maslin at the New York Times
