In Defense of the Aimless? Jennifer Egan's "A Visit from the Goon Squad" and Tao Lin's "Taipei"

My favorite Goodreads review of A Visit from the Goon Squad questions, “When did the Pulitzer become the Puke-litzer?” The idea that Egan’s 2010 novel about the ravages of time across decades, continents, and an intricate web of characters was not worthy of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize in Fiction is not an uncommon one; with an average rating of 3.64 out of 5, 856 more words
