Describing the Indescribable–A Books and Bars (Pre)View

This month’s Books and Bars pick, the Pulitzer Prize-winning A Visit From the Goon Squad gets a closer look from book club regular Courtney Algeo in the books section of the TC Daily Planet.

In her review, Algeo sniffs out hints of Faulkner, marvels at author Jennifer Egan’s ability to “describe the indescribable” and plucks this gorgeous phrase from the pages of Goon Squad, “We’ll rise up out of our bodies and find each other again in spirit form. We’ll meet in a new place, all of us together, and first it’ll seem strange, and pretty soon it’ll seem strange that you could ever lose someone, or get lost.”

Books & Bars meets at 7:00pm, this coming Tuesday at Aster Cafe, 125 SE Main Street, St Anthony Main, Minneapolis. The club is presented by Jeff Kamin and Magers & Quinn Booksellers, sponsored by Aster Cafe, Metro Magazine and Fulton Beer.
