‘A Visit from the Goon Squad’ – Jennifer Egan

London, January 2018


The one with Sasha, a semi-pickpocket and from there, a landscape of characters intertwined over time that ends in a future owned by children with ‘handsets’ (or smartphones).


This was very different to what I’d expected, far less linear. I liked it, and couldn’t put it down, but also didn’t love it. I suppose I would have liked longer with some of the characters but was struck also by how well the characters were written as they were memorable from barely a glance.
