A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan | Episode 033

July 6, 2016

Infinite Gestation gets A Visit from the Goon Squad on this episode covering Jennifer Egan’s 2010 Pulitzer Prize winning novel of the same name. The book stands more as a study on the emotional effects of time and memory (and life) on a group of loosely associated characters and less as a straight forward narrative in the traditional sense. With a realistic portrayal straying from cliched tropes of the record industry (including that of a Brady Bunch episode), the novel certainly completes its goals masterfully, leaving little wonder regarding the wisdom of its Pulitzer win.
