A Visit from The Goon Squad, Jennifer Egan Not only did this book win the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction this year, but it’s also been lapped up by the critics. The book is broken up into a series of short stories, many of which involve the character Bennie Salazar. Bennie is an aging rock executive who is getting more self-destructive as he gets older. The stories shift back and forth in time, vaulting from the late Sixities to the present day.
On my reading list! A Visit From The Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan. Bennie is an aging former punk rocker and record executive. Sasha is the passionate, troubled young woman he employs. Here Jennifer Egan brilliantly reveals their pasts, along with the inner lives of a host of other characters whose paths intersect with theirs. With music pulsing on every page, A Visit from the Goon Squad is a startling, exhilarating novel of self-destruction and redemption.
A video book review of A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan. One of the top picks from In the Stacks librarians for your book club to read and the Pulitzer Prize winner for fiction in 2011.
loved this story. definitely the kind of book worth reading a few times to fully grasp the time and setting changes and how each character's stories become woven together.

Fifty Shames of Earl Grey: A Parody. WORTH READING, especially if you have read the Fifty Shades series and weren't hugely impressed. This is one funny book that makes fun of the series.
#FiftyShamesOfEarlGrey #FannyMerkin #FSOGParody
"Fifty Shames of Earl Grey: A Parody" - by Fanny Merkin a.k.a. Andrew Shaffer (a parody that gets under the covers :-) I'm much more likely to read this humorous take on the "phenomenom" than the original Fifty Shades of Grey.
