A Visit From the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan

A Visit From the Goon Squad is the first of my books to delve into for this blog.  It’s a very recent book about a group of teenage friends from the 1970s who reunite in unexpected ways as adults in the 1990s.  

Each chapter is from a different friend’s point of view.  I’ll be exploring this tactic as I move further into the book, but first I’ll focus on character description.

So far, I recommend you pick up a copy and follow along!



About Em-dash Lady

Em-dash Lady enjoys creative writing most of all, but her interests include art forms from music to writing to visual art to indie films and so forth. She's especially interested in how the art forms influence each other and blend together. She's a creative writing teacher and writer who mostly writes memoir and poetry about her favorite activity, watching TV. I would say I'm kidding, but I'm not. Naps are also her favorite. Too many favorites to count! Enjoy following Em-dash Lady as she figures out how she fits in the ever-evolving world of art.
