?What was the inspiration behind the creation of this book??
Two sources inspired A Visit from the Goon Squad. Jennifer Egan already knew she wanted to write about time, just not the specifics. Then her book club got Marcel Proust?s In Search of Lost Time as their book selection at the same time HBO?s The Sopranos was airing on TV, so it was kind of hard for her not to miss it. Proust?s book is a voluminous tome that explores the themes of time, space and memory, multiplicity of perspectives and formation of experience. On the other hand, The Sopranos is about Italian-American mobster Tony Soprano who?s struggling with the difficulty of balancing his family obligations (he?s a good family man) and his obligations with the criminal organization he leads. Add in Quentin Tarantino?s Pulp Fiction, which she had watched in 1994 and which style of approach, i.e. the upside-down chronology that she used in Goon Squad, she had unconsciously depicted. But she didn?t know how much of this happened until she watched the movie again for a second time just last year. In fact, like the characters in her book, she didn?t realize how much she had changed from the original viewing up until that point.
Don't miss out! It's highly recommended.
