Staff Recommendation: A Visit from the Goon Squad

Simply put, I flat out loved this book. Centered around a music industry executive and his assistant, Egan tells a rich and layered story about time, age, love, and failure, with music acting as a connective thread through it all. Each chapter is dedicated to a different character and perspective, and while this could be a gimmick in lesser hands, Egan is able to weave these storytelling threads together into a narrative that crackles and pulsates, with a fresh and insightful discovery on every page. Highest recommendation!
