Issued on: Modified:
Her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel “A Visit from the Goon Squad” charmed readers in 2010 and was hailed by critics as a true literary engagement with the age of tech. Jennifer Egan’s latest novel “The Candy House” explores the evolution of the online space and how it is rewiring our interactions, inclinations and perception of the world. Egan tells us about her experimental approach to her craft and explains why, when our attention spans have become hard currency, deep and reflective reading can be a form of resistance.
