    Jennifer Egan’s follow-up to the genre-defying and captivating Pulitzer Prize–winning novel A Visit from the Good Squad is a remarkable work of historical fiction. Epic in its scope and intimate in its tone, Manhattan Beach opens in Brooklyn during the Great Depression and then flashes forward to WW2. Egan follows three characters – gangster Dexter Styles, union bagman Eddie Kerrigan and Eddie’s daughter Anna as their lives collide inside nightclubs, on ships and at sea. The world of the novel is wholly realised, rich in details that never feel laboured, and the reader is swept up in Egan’s assured and elegant prose. This is historical fiction at its best: gripping, immersive and transporting.
