A Visit from the Goon Squad 电子书 图书描述

Jennifer Egan’s spellbinding interlocking narratives circle 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 long-standing compulsion to steal. Later, we learn the genesis of her turmoil when we see her as the child of a violent marriage, then as a runaway living in Naples, then as a college student trying to avert the suicidal impulses of her best friend. We plunge into the hidden yearnings and disappointments of her uncle, an art historian stuck in a dead marriage, who travels to Naples to extract Sasha from the city’s demimonde and experiences an epiphany of his own while staring at a sculpture of Orpheus and Eurydice in the Museo Nazionale. 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.

A Visit from the Goon Squad 电子书 读后感

评分

The phrase "time is a goon" is uttered twice in this audacious, surprisingly affecting novel-in-pieces - first by an ageing rock star, and again, years later, by a manager trying to persuade another errant, decrepit star on to a stage. All these people are ...

还没有看完这本书,但是有一些徘徊在脑子里的话,就爬上来啰嗦几句。 最开始接触这本书的时候,说实话,看封面,我没有什么想看的欲望。(封面党是的)但是翻开之后,一直徘徊在看下去和不看下去之间。 我觉得这是一个很悲伤地故事。时间并不是一个很新颖的topic,尤其是在早...

还是看英文版吧

最后一章伪Scifi略难下咽外都不错。Tag line: Time is a goon. 一群人,内心戏,和时光如何改变了他们。这些人都不太快乐,都或多或少fucked up,都略有些nutcase的潜质。最喜欢slides形式的那一章,格外动人。
