Audacious. Dazzling. Shape-shifting. Dizzyingly inventive. These are some of the words of praise lavished on Jennifer Egan’s “A Visit From the Goon Squad,” which won both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award for fiction in 2011. In 2012, she followed that Power Point-bedecked tour de force with “Black Box,” a long story released over nine days as a series of tweets on the New Yorker’s Twitter feed. Well, Egan has managed to surprise us again with “Manhattan Beach” — not with structural innovations, but because it is an unexpectedly straightforward narrative, a historical novel set primarily in Brooklyn during World War II. Don’t get me wrong: I’m not complaining.
