Manhattan Beach by Jennifer EganAbout the book

Manhattan Beach takes place during the World War II era and tells the haunting and propulsive intertwined stories of heroine Anna Kerrigan, the Brooklyn Navy Yard’s only female diver, her father Eddie Kerrigan, who works for both the union and the mob, and nightclub owner Dexter Styles, Eddie’s complex and charismatic boss.

“To find a compelling story well told, one that is full of complex characters and sentences so luminous they stop you in your tracks, is one of literature’s greatest pleasures. That pleasure is bestowed liberally by Jennifer Egan in Manhattan Beach.” — The Irish Times 

Egan’s most remarkable accomplishment yet ... At once a suspenseful novel of noir intrigue, a gorgeously wrought and richly allusive literary tapestry and a transporting work of lyrical beauty and emotional heft, Manhattan Beach is a magnificent achievement.” — The Boston Globe
