Emerald City
Emerald City | Jennifer Egan
5 posts | 5 read | 5 to read
These eleven masterful stories the first collection from acclaimed author Jennifer Egan deal with loneliness and longing, regret and desire. Egans characters models and housewives, bankers and schoolgirls are united by their search for something outside their own realm of experience. They set out from locations as exotic as China and Bora Bora, as cosmopolitan as downtown Manhattan, or as familiar as suburban Illinois to seek their own transformations. Elegant and poignant, the stories in Emerald City are seamless evocations of self-discovery. From the Trade Paperback edition.

I just remember my paternal grandmother giving me this exact sterling silver ring of a panther with #Emerald eyes

My son and I had an amazing time at #ECCC2019 #Seattle this wknd:
Books bought and signed, panels, the #StarWars experience, LEGO, Bakugan, @penguinrandomhouse book club, shopping, and tired feet. We really needed this for our mental health and time away from reality! Until next year!

*I also hit the yearly public library sale this weekend...it was like a huge treasure hunt.

BlameJennyJane My 11 year old would have LOVED this!! 9mo
RainyDayReading I almost went to that library sale! But figured I‘d wait for the half price books warehouse sale this summer to stock up 😁 9mo
kamoorephoto @RainyDayReading When is that sale??? 9mo
RainyDayReading @kamoorephoto Not sure yet, they haven‘t announced the dates. They have one a month during the summer so the first one should be in June. I‘ll keep my eyes open and let you know when it‘s happening! 9mo

Pickpick

Unsurprisingly well crafted stories about people looking for answers, for something new, or for themselves. I really liked A Visit from the Goon Squad, and there are threads of common preoccupations between this collection and the novel: perception v. reality, the slipperiness of identity.
