Description
(Nominated for the 2017 National Book Award) This first foray into historical fiction from the author of the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Critics Circle Award winner A Visit from the Goon Squad is an "immensely satisfying ... old-fashioned page-turner" (NYTBR). Not yet 12, Anna Kerrigan accompanies her father to meet Dexter Styles, and gleans that he is somehow crucial to the survival of her family. Years later, her father has disappeared, America is fighting World War II on two oceans, and Anna works at Brooklyn Navy Yard, repairing warships as the navy's first female diver. Then one evening at a nightclub, she meets the mysterious Dexter Styles again, and begins to understand the complexity of her father's life, and why he might have vanished. With the atmosphere of a noir thriller, Jennifer Egan follows Anna and Styles into a world on the brink of transformation, populated by gangsters and sailors, bankers and union men.

"A bounteous miracle that makes you feel that past time, and our time, differently; everything becomes freshly energized, infused with humanity, vital, sad, and full of importance. To see the world through Egan's eyes is to be moved, through language, to new adoration of the world. I don't know a better writer working today. There is a generosity in her prose that is vastly enlivening to its reader and brings about that beautiful effect fiction sometimes causes: more, and better-grounded, fondness for reality, just as it is."—George Saunders

"Egan's propulsive, surprising, ravishing, and revelatory saga, a covertly profound page-turner that will transport and transform every reader, casts us all as divers in the deep, searching for answers, hope, and ascension."—Booklist (starred review)
