P.O.V.: This month we are celebrating FCPL's Year of Literacy. July is Musical Literacy and we are reading a book where music is at the center of the character's lives.

Summary

With music pulsing on every page, this startling, exhilarating novel of self-destruction and redemption "features characters about whom you come to care deeply as you watch them doing things they shouldn't, acting gloriously, infuriatingly human" ( The Chicago Tribune ) .

Bennie is an aging former punk rocker and record executive. Sasha is the passionate, troubled young woman he employs. Here Jennifer Egan brilliantly reveals their pasts, along with the inner lives of a host of other characters whose paths intersect with theirs.
