"Great Rock and Roll Pauses" by Jennifer Egan

Jennifer Egan‘s forthcoming book, A Visit from the Goon Squad, includes a PowerPoint layout of a story about the mid-song pauses in some great rock and roll tunes. Of course, this story is also about much more than these second-long pauses: it’s about family, alienation, and the moments in which we recognize the passage of time.

Egan has turned this Powerpoint into an embeddable slideshow, complete with audio. Please enjoy and share.

A Visit from the Goon Squad is on sale June 8th. Pre-order your copy.
