Staff Reviews


This whip-smart book skips through time, style, and tone with ease, as a dazzling array of complex characters struggle with who they’ve become, and with the violently changed world they find themselves in. Egan’s writing is subtle but has some pointed things to say about life, change, and humanity in general. Funny, melancholy, and captivating, this is a fresh, vibrant story that thrums with the energy of a finely tuned bass. I loved it.

Summer 2012 Reading Group


“In A Visit from the Goon Squad, Egan presents a number of the kinds of idiosyncrasies we tend to avoid, only in this collection of expertly layered stories, the flawed characters enrapture and entwine themselves in the reader's imagination. Egan's novel is in a fresh form, the function of which merely hints at our own human imperfections and allows readers to forgive not just the characters in this collection, but themselves as well.”
