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!
