May 1, 2022 (by Aesop)

Brilliant! Jennifer Egan brings us a follow-on story with adjunct characters from her Pulitzer Prize winning A Visit to the Goon Squad. Instead of rock n' roll, The Candy House is a theoretical dive into the future of technology where your consciousness can be shared and preserved through a vast global social network with all of your memories past and present an open book for all to access. This technological leap forward raises ethical questions and is full of thought provoking narratives by a cast of characters that will leave you wanting more. The Candy House is contemporary fiction at its best!
