This fantastically inventive, intelligent, and fully realized exploration of music, art, and life is a must-listen. 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.

This (audio) book is different and well worth a read (listen) - this is absolutely brilliantly read - does show one disadvantage of audio book - so many characters emerge disappear and re-emerge that I struggled to keep track cos I couldn't "look back to check"

No doubt internet will have a diagram linking them all - if so you may need it

But one again - brilliantly read by Roxana Ortega

We read this for my book club. Some of the women didn't like it because of the decadent lifestyles of some of the main characters and what they thought was the confusing way the book was written. But I thought it was brilliantly written from multiple perspectives at different points in time. The characterization was well developed showing the nature of individuals through their interactions with others.
