Running Time
54 Min.


Jennifer Egan visits Google's NYC office to discuss her novel "A Visit from the Goon Squad." This event took place on August 4, 2011, as part of the Authors@Google series. Moderated by Greg Sanders.

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.

Jennifer Egan's A Visit From the Goon Squad has been awarded the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for fiction. In their citation, the judges called the novel "an inventive investigation of growing up and growing old in the digital age, displaying a big-hearted curiosity about cultural change at warp speed." She is the author of three novels, The Invisible Circus, Look at Me, a finalist for the National Book Award, and the bestselling The Keep, and a short story collection, Emerald City. She has published short fiction in The New Yorker, Harper's, McSweeney's and Ploughshares, among others, and her journalism appears frequently in the New York Times Magazine.
