Review:

"Egan's first foray into historical fiction makes you forget you're reading historical fiction at all."--Elle

"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

"Excellent . . . .Manhattan Beach is a fleet, sinuous epic, abounding with evocative details and felicitous metaphors . . . . [it] magnificently captures the country on the brink of triumph and triumphalism."--Bookforum

"Manhattan Beach is ambitiously and deliciously plot-driven." -NPR's Fresh Air

"Egan's prose is transparent and elegant. . . .But the chief joy of reading Manhattan Beach lies in diving under the surface pleasures of the plot (which are plentiful -- it's immersive and compelling), and sinking slowly to its dark and unknowable depths. There are deep truths there." -- Vox

..".dares to satisfy us in a way that stories of an earlier age used to." - Ron Charles, The Washington Post

"Manhattan Beach is so rich in detail and atmosphere; such an exploration of underworlds of all kinds, filled with lessons on lifelines and buoyancy and how to bear life's weight by diving deep into it. Jennifer Egan has masterfully conjured an era we are on the cusp of losing. Her novel is an absorbing story, beautifully written. Its strands of subtle intrigue and quiet heroism make you reluctant to leave each page while eager to get to the next."--M.L. Stedman

"Egan's most remarkable accomplishment yet. . . . At once a suspenseful novel of noir intrigue, a gorgeously wrought and richly allusive literary tapestry, and a transporting work of lyrical beauty and emotional heft, Manhattan Beach is a magnificent achievement." -Priscilla Gilman, The Boston Globe

"An unusually well written, well researched, emotionally satisfying page-turner . . . Manhattan Beach is the kind of book you can immerse yourself in happily." -Heller McAlpin, San Francisco Chronicle

"Rich, brilliant, capacious . . . Egan has every gift a writer can possess . . . . Moving, mournful, and often profound." --USA Today
