Interesting answer to this question. Connect.

Cracked by Bhavika and Aditya Mani Jha! Sweet stuff. Extra points to AMJ for a really descriptive answer. Don’t worry, the points table will be up soon enough to reflect the extra credit :P

Answer : (quoting from AMJ) “The lady is American author Jennifer Egan, whose Pulitzer-winning novel “A Visit From The Goon Squad”, (apart from being a kick-ass bittersweet novel about ageing, loss and fucking up on unimaginable scales) has a number of very interesting formal devices- One of the chapters is in the form of a PowerPoint presentation. Also, the Twitter funda is that The New Yorker had the brainwave to serialize the novel in, well, tweets.”
