City Times Staff
City Times Book Club members have selected “A Visit from the Goon Squad” by Jennifer Egan as their reading for the month of August.
From the publisher: “Jennifer Egan’s spellbinding interlocking narratives circle the lives of Bennie Salazar, an aging former punk rocker and record executive, and Sasha, the passionate, troubled young woman he employs. Although Bennie and Sasha never discover each other’s pasts, the reader does, in intimate detail, along with the secret lives of a host of other characters whose paths intersect with theirs, over many years, in locales as varied as New York, San Francisco, Naples, and Africa.”
Copies of the book will be available to all at the Portage County Public Library on August 1 and discussion questions and thoughts about the book can be found on our Twitter page @CTBookClub.
A rough reading schedule will also be posted on Twitter so there are no spoilers for those who get a late start in the reading.
