Silence Amid the Goon Squad

Listening to fiction

This is from the very end of Jennifer Egan’s A Visit from the Goon Squad, and it both gives nothing away and is a great entry point to the sort of reading a newcomer to it should look forward to. This sure is a heck of a book, as so many people have told me over the years. Finally read it. An amazing Akutagawa Borges Gibson Nabokov chimera of time travel minus the time travel — about connections, perceptions, and perspective. My favorite novel out of the 17 I’ve finished reading so far in 2022.
