Gibson's Book Club reads Visit from the Goon Squad
Monday, June 4, 2012, at 7 PM
The winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award, beating out Franzen's Freedom in both cases in highly publicized and controversial contests, Visit from the Goon Squad was one of the most important novels of 2010. A novel in the form of loosely linked short stories, Goon Squad paints
rich and compelling portraits of some self-destructive but entertaining
characters as they grope their way through life and the modern music
business, which is delineated hilariously in all its comic majesty.
So which novel is better, Freedom or Goon Squad? How do we judge these matters? Attend our May and June meetings to hash it all out.
