Jennifer Egan:
A Visit From the Goon Squad - double-signed, dated and sketched UK 1st edn - signed or inscribed book

2011, ISBN: 1780330286

Hardcover, First edition, ID: 5492011406

[EAN: 9781780330280], Neubuch, [PU: Corsair, UK], Jacket, A superb, new/unread UK hb 1st/1st edn of the Pulitzer prize-winning novel "A Visit From the Goon Squad" by Jennifer Egan. This copy has been signed and dated by Jennifer Egan, and signed and hand- sketched by the cover artist Greg Heinimann. An excellent, beautiful copy. Please note - contrary to some listings I have seen on Abe, the hardback edition was NOT preceded by the paperback - both were issued simultaneously (and I have this in writing from the publisher, so do not be fooled by other erroneous listings). This copy is one of only 16 copies (from the whole edition of 1,524 hb 1sts) to be double-signed and sketched in this manner. Synopsis : Jennifer Egan's spellbinding novel circles 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. We first meet Sasha in her mid-thirties, on her therapist's couch in New York City, confronting her longstanding compulsion to steal. Later, we learn the genesis of her turmoil when we see her as the child of a violent marriage, then a runaway living in Naples, then as a college student trying to avert the suicidal impulses of her best friend. We meet Bennie Salazar at the melancholy nadir of his adult life - divorced, struggling to connect with his nine-year-old son, listening to a washed up band in the basement of a suburban house - and then revisit him in 1979, at the height of his youth, shy and tender, reveling in San Francisco's punk scene as he discovers his ardor for rock and roll and his gift for spotting talent. We learn what became of his high school gang - who thrived and who faltered - and we encounter Lou Kline, Bennie's catastrophically careless mentor, along with the lovers and children left behind in the wake of Lou's far flung sexual conquests and meteoric rise and fall. "A Visit from the Goon Squad" is a book about the interplay of time and music, about survival, about the stirrings and transformations set inexorably in motion by even the most passing conjunction of our fates. In a breathtaking array of styles and tones ranging from tragedy to satire to Powerpoint, Egan captures the undertow of self-destruction that we all must either master or succumb to; the basic human hunger for redemption; and, the universal tendency to reach for both - and escape the merciless progress of time - in the transporting realms of art and music. Sly, startling, exhilarating work from one of our boldest writers., Books
