Annotations for Visit from the Goon Squad
Findaway World Llc
Bennie Salazar, an aging punk rocker and record executive, and the beautiful Sasha, the troubled young woman he employs, never discover each other's pasts, but the reader does, in intimate detail, along with the secret lives of a host of other people whose paths intersect with theirs in the course of nearly fifty years and in a handful of countries. A Visit from the Goon Squad is about time, about survival, about our private terrors, and what happens when we fail to rebound. It's a sly, startling, exhilarating work from one of our boldest writers.
