The American writer Jennifer Egan presents her latest work, Manhattan Beach.
In this historical novel, Egan’s first since the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel A Visit from the Goon Squad, we follow the story of a young woman as she struggles to make her way in New York in the 1930s and 1940s. After the mysterious disappearance of her father, Anna starts to work on a naval base in Brooklyn.
With Manhattan Beach, Jennifer Egan holds to the promise she made herself at the start of her career: never
to write the same book twice. Get ready for a unique discussion with a headstrong writer about the sense of tradition and the courage to depart from experimentation.
