…Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan.
Manhattan Beach is the fifth novel – and first work of historical fiction – written by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jennifer Egan, a Brooklyn resident. Winner of the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction, the book was also long-listed for the 2017 National Book Award and selected as a top book of 2017 by publications including The New York Times, Washington Post, and Time. Manhattan Beach tells the haunting World War II-era story of Anna Kerrigan, who becomes the Brooklyn Navy Yard's first female diver, and her search for her missing father.
