Summary
Manhattan Beach is the most recent work of art from author Jennifer Egan. Leaving behind her normal style of writing, Jennifer effectively depicts the World War II era from the points of view of a very strong young lady, her father, and his "boss". Primarily following the journey of Anna Kerrigan, from childhood through adulthood, Manhattan Beach brings to life a vivid read of the mob, corruption, luck, love, hope and more. One of Amazon's "Best Books of October 2017", this historical novel brings darkness and light together in an epic story readers won't soon forget. "Long listed for the National Book Award for Fiction" before it was even released to the public, this is one novel that has future award winner written all over it. A Brief Look Inside: EVERY GOOD BOOK CONTAINS A WORLD FAR DEEPER than the surface of its pages. The characters and their world come alive, and the characters and its world still live on. Conversation Starters is peppered with questions designed to bring us beneath the surface of the page and invite us into the world that lives on. These questions can be used to: Create Hours of Conversation; Foster a deeper understanding of the book; Promote an atmosphere of discussion for groups; Assist in the study of the book, either individually or corporately
