Book Review: 'Emerald City'

Posted on

Emerald City (Jennifer Egan Book)

We gave it an A

The author of the novel The Invisible Circus turns out, in this collection of short fiction, to be a literary chameleon who can not only set her stories in locales as varied as Bora Bora and Manhattan but also write convincingly from a male point of view. Discovering Egan in the ’90s is like discovering Ann Beattie in the ’80s.
