Why did we create a special edition app for A Visit from the Goon Squad?

As the most structurally interesting, (not to mention breathtakingly good) novel of 2010, we decided that publishing a special electronic edition of the book, making use of all of the technical wizardry possible on new tablet devices and smartphones was too good an opportunity to pass up.

A Visit from the Goon Squad is a work of art; both a timeless American novel, and an audaciously interlocking collection of short stories, weaving together themes of time and memory, music, art and technology with bravura style and a symphony of unforgettable voices. We hope that the unique features of this special edition do justice to the book and provide a singular reading experience, allowing readers to approach it in new and interesting ways.
