Jennifer Egan is the author of four critically acclaimed novels and a collection of short stories. She is also the winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Price for “A Visit from the Goon Squad.” Sometimes heartbreaking and often hilarious, the work is an interlocking narrative connecting the lives of half a dozen characters, moving backwards and forwards in time over the span of 50 years.
