Your days are numbered, so you’ll want to read Jennifer Egan's new, strange, unnerving, totally absorbing book immediately.
Bio: Meredith Bryan is an editor at O, the Oprah magazine, and a former staff writer at The New York Observer.
Jennifer Egan’s new novel, A Visit from the Goon Squad, is alternately hilarious, portentous, and withering. But it is not subtle. The goon is time, we learn from a former rock star—reduced, when we meet him, to a crippled, graying, Rocky Road-addled shut-in whose desperate last gasp of a new album, A to B, asks Egan’s basic question: how does a person get from there to here?
