MANHATTAN BEACH is a deft, dazzling, propulsive exploration of a transformative moment in the lives and identities of women and men, of America and the world.

by Jennifer Egan

Bennie Salazar, an aging punk rocker and record executive, and the beautiful Sasha, the troubled young woman he employs, never discover each other's pasts, but the reader does, in intimate detail, along with the secret lives of a host of other people whose paths intersect with theirs in the course of nearly 50 years. A Visit from the Goon Squad is about time, about survival, about our private terrors, and what happens when we fail to rebound.
