Jennifer Egan’s A Visit from the Goon Squad won the Pulitzer Prize and marked her as one of the greatest novelists of our time. Her long-awaited follow-up, Manhattan Beach, is a dazzling historical novel set against the backdrop of the Great Depression and the Second World War – transformative events in the lives of women and men, America and the world. Jennifer talks to Jennifer Byrne about her intricately woven and hauntingly beautiful novel.
