Joining us in the Audible Studios to discuss her fifth novel, Manhattan Beach, is Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jennifer Egan. Raised in San Francisco, Jennifer Egan has been described as one of the most experimentally fearless writers of the modern age - a Pulitzer Prize winner for her novel A Visit from the Goon Squad amongst various other awards and recognitions for both her fiction and nonfiction work.
A regular contributor to the New York Times Magazine, her latest title comes six years after her prestigious win. Jennifer talks to us about her move into historical fiction, how she defines herself as a writer and what the necessities of her creative process are.

Nice amuse bouche to the novel
I preordered Manhattan Beach because of Jennifer Egan, but I still haven't started it. This little interview got me much more motivated to get reading or listening or both ASAP. Good questions and answers, and an incredible hope that her companion to Goon Squad (sans Powerpoint) comes to pass.
